Middle School Language Arts & More!

Mr. Richard Rouillard

WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17, 2014

**

1ST TRIMESTER ENDS ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21.

**

DON'T FORGET TO TURN IN YOUR JOG-A-THON MONEY. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!

**

Only one (1) Book Adventure Book required per trimester!

To help insure that students are keeping up with their classwork, homework, and core novels in Language Arts, students are now only required to read one Book Adventure book per trimester. If you have already read two books this trimester, I can give you extra credit.


This is the last week for Book Adventure for this trimester, so finish that book! Book Adventure is worth 5% of your overall Language Arts grade for the trimester.
