8th Grade Parent Surveys
Passages - March 21
What is Passages? A Passages presentation is an opportunity for students to reflect upon their learning and demonstrate readiness for the next phase of their educational experience...high school. EL Education Schools provide this experience and opportunity to eighth grade students to help them improve upon public speaking and to prepare them for student-led conferences. This year, students will present their Passages in front of a panel. The panel will consist of teachers at MGMS and across the district, administrators, and community members. Passages is an important opportunity that empowers students to speak of their growth and progress as a learner.

Fireflies Baseball Reading Program
Would you like for your student to be able to go to a Fireflies baseball game for FREE? All they have to do is read 4 "just right" books from February 7th until March 30th. If they meet their reading goal, they will receive a free ticket to a Fireflies baseball game, a hot dog, drink, chips, and surprise while at the game! This is a great opportunity to have your student make a reading goal. Students can get their reading log from their ELA teachers, in the Learning Commons, and from the Learning Commons Schoology Course.
