This Week


This week students are doing lessons 8, 9, 10, and topic A & B quiz review.

Language Arts

This week students are reading Outsiders chapters 7-9, vocabulary practice, a poetry lesson, and there is a quiz on Friday.


This week students are learning about niche vs. habitat, symbiosis, and doing a chapter test review.

World Geography

This week students are learning about HEI (human environment interaction), natural resources, push and pull factors, continents and countries, and the Constitution. Tuesday is Constitution Day, which means students are required to learn about it that day in class. Friday will be the start of our common assessment paragraph over what geography is and how it is used.


Students need to bring a charged computer to class every day. This means computers need to be charged every night. Please help students remember to charge them. Thank you.
