The end of the trimester and Thanksgiving break are quickly approaching, and that means we are wrapping up the first third of the school year!
All language arts classes have narratives due before Thanksgiving break. Due dates will vary depending on the day each student had a conference with either me or Mr. Molina. In language arts, we are continuing to research for the science fair. The official prompt for the research paper was passed out this week. Please look over it with your student if he/she needs help. Also, take a look at the PDF of the PowerPoint I posted in the newsletter a few weeks ago for further information about science fair research. Note that the research paper will not be due until after the break.
We will be finishing up our Ancient Mesopotamia unit in ancient civilizations and our American Revolution unit in United States history. Tests for both classes will be the week after next.
8th grade religion has an end of the trimester project as well. They will be due Tuesday, 11/14.
