• Dear Students:   
      
     READ!   The following information gives details for our learning targets this week:
     
    English 7 students continue with root words adding 25-26 study guide along with Vocabulary Unit 10 Packet.  Grammar focus this month is the phrase.  Students begin their reading of The Outsiders novel with individual focus on student reading journals.  Questions and responses discussed in class.  Students will be expected to keep up with the required readings of each chapter as assigned and to complete each reading journal chapter entry in class.  Chapter activities will be completed in class.
     
    Honors English 7 students have vocabulary unit #7 test this week.  Grammar focus is on the participle phrase.  Students are beginning independent chapter readings of The Outsiders novel.  Individual chapters will be read for homework and reading journals will be due for credit when the chapter is due for group/class discussions.  No late journal entries will be allowed or student will forfeit partial credit. 
     
      
    Please note: The supplies listed on the letter/contract sent home are suggested materials and are not required of any student or family to fully participate in the school’s academic program. All required materials and supplies will be provided by schools to students at no cost if these items are not readily available from the students. I recognize that many families wish to provide supplies for their own students and are welcomed to do so at any time. This is greatly appreciated.                                                                                       
    Sincerely,
