    Mr. Hollingsworth's Stars of the Week

    The “Star of the Week” is given each week to the band and orchestra student who performed the best of the weekly playing test. Students also receive “Honorable Mention” each week to recognize those students who performed well on their tests. The award is displayed outside of the instrumental music room. Students may win “Star of the Week” only once per quarter.

    8th Grade Social Studies

    8th Grade Social Studies students are exploring the 1763-1775 time period in our nation’s history as colonists progress toward independence from Britain and to the launch of the Revolutionary War in 1775. We are analyzing the key events from the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party and various taxation acts the British imposed that brought the resistance of the colonists to British rule and “taxation without representation.” Through next month, studies are moving to the Revolutionary War period, the formal founding of our nation, and learning and examining the U.S. Constitution.

    Hello from the Dean Ray Stucky Library

    By now your student has had the opportunity for book check out 3 times on our biweekly check in/out calendar. Please ask them what they have been reading and what they would like to read. I would so love to find out so I can help them continue with a series or genre and also use proceeds of the book fairs to get what they prefer. I welcome suggestions for new and changes at any time.

    I will be posting book fair totals for the sales of September 25th and 27th in next month’s newsletter. Please pencil in the tentative date for the Barnes & Noble Book Fai on November 18th, the Sunday before Thanksgiving Break.

    I appreciate this year’s opportunity to share in your child’s learning.

    8th Grade Language Arts

    We have been working diligently on our Unit One: Relationships within the ELA classrooms. Next week, we will be finishing up “The Rules of the Game” by Amy Tan and our informational/explanatory writing, and starting a new unit. Unit Two: Fear will contain some Edgar Allen Poe and argumentative writing. We think they will have a great time with the new unit!
