Something to Crow About - a Wonderful First Week!

This has been an exciting first week of 8th grade! Our students have jumped right into the 8th grade school routine. Students have already participated in the first 8th grade Language Arts and Math assessments this week.


Students showed up this week with their notebooks, journals, and supplies. A BIG thanks to all the families that donated tissue and other school supplies! We appreciate your generosity!


We are in the process of starting our Interactive Notebooks with our students. The set-up process takes some time, but we reap great rewards in student organization when we start using them for note taking. Thanks for providing your child with notebooks, scissors, glue sticks, and tape! We were able to get started right away thanks to the students being prepared!


Thank you so much for the fantastic turnout at Back to School Night last Friday. It was great to see so many parents who are so active in their child's educational success. As a reminder, if you haven't already done so, please make sure to return the envelope of office paperwork by Friday.



Thursday folders went home today as a "test run". Right now there is very little in the grade books because most work right now is being done electronically. Look for the folder again next week, you will be an active part of filling out the Thursday folder each week.

Thanks again for all of your support!
