The Language Arts Lowdown!

Volume 5, Issue 27 March 14, 2014

Here's the scoop!

Thanks so much to all the parents who responded to our survey about the Poetry Cafe! It looks like we will be holding it one evening at 6:30 (probably a Tuesday). I am looking at April 1st as the date. I will now just secure our location, and let you all know!


This week, we were all very busy getting our Poetry Anthology completed and turned in today. We will be practicing our oral presentations on Thursday by sharing with Mrs. Kliefoth's class. The students will not need any props or costumes for this portion, as we will be focused on our diction and volume :)
