The Longshot

Monthly Classroom Newsletter from A215

From the Desk of Mrs. Long...

Welcome parents! Thank you for taking the time to check out our end of September newsletter. It has been a very successful month of school for 7th grade, we started a reading challenge, wrote our first essay, explored some classroom technology, and took our Global Scholar tests! I am very proud of everyone and continue to be impressed with their work ethic and willingness to try anything!

Check out the Class Website for Helpful Information!

Students and parents can get daily lesson plans, keep up with the homework calendar, follow along with projects or study materials, among much, much more!
