The Last Week Information!  

Dear Parents,

     As we enter our last week of school, I want you to be aware there will be no homework assignments this week. Instruction will continue each day in class as we focus on standard RI.6.5 Analyze how a particular sentence, paragraph, chapter, or section fits into the overall structure of a text and contributes to the development of the ideas. Please make sure your child has paper and pencil each day.

     I would also like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for the support you have provided me, and most importantly, your child. Parents who are actively involved and supportive in the learning of their child will see the child become a successful adult.

    Once again, thank you and enjoy the summer!

Important Changes  

Dear Parents and Students,

     I wanted everyone to be aware of a change in our weekly vocabulary tests. We will now have our tests on Thursdays with students receiving the new words for the following week each Friday.

     As many of you are aware, students completing and turning in homework assignments was a huge problem! As an incentive ( in addition to the grade ), students who complete and turn in ALL homework assignments will be rewarded every four weeks with a "Sundae" party or a pizza party.

     Stay tune for additional information and changes!

Very Important Announcement!  

November 26, 2013 

Dear Parents,

     Please forgive me for not providing this information yesterday. As you have probably assumed, we will not have homework assignments this week. We will begin next week with daily assignments and vocabulary words.

     We will begin a new unit next week as well. The title of the unit is “Embracing Heritage” and is scheduled to last eight weeks. I will post standards in the days to come. Please make note that we will read Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan. At this point we have enough paperback copies for each student ( yea!!!! ). Students will be given reading assignments outside of class, so please check assignments each Monday.

     Last, but not least, I hope each of you have a blessed and safe Thanksgiving with your family and friends!
