The Giver

We've begun our novel study of The Giver by Lois Lowry. We will read and analyze this story over the next five weeks. Our focus will be on elements of fiction as well as paired texts in other genres, including poetry and nonfiction. As a culminating event, we will show the movie as well. Please look for a link to the permission slip in the February newsletter.

Wild About Writing

As we continue to focus on expository writing, students will have an opportunity to have their best writing displayed on our writing wall. Only papers that earn a score of "4" will be displayed. Students will be given multiple opportunities to revise their essays after conferencing with their teacher. Stay tuned for more celebrations of great writing!

Remember all report cards and progress reports are available in HAC.
