April 8th Grade Language Arts Newsletter

Hello Parents!

April Showers bring May flowers, and they also bring the last six weeks of the 8th grade year! Soon these little darlings will be preparing for a fun-filled summer and getting geared-up for the jump into high school. As the spring semester continues, we have lots of learning still in store for these last months of school. Hopefully our Spring Fever won't get the best of us, and we can finish the year strong! Please read below to see what's coming up this month in Language Arts.
