WIDA TESTING UPDATE
We will be administering the WIDA assessment in support of English proficiency for students identified as English language learners (ELLs). This assessment monitors the development of growth in attaining English proficiency. WIDA testing will be March 16 & 17 (two days of testing) from 9:00AM - 1:00PM.
Specific information will be provided to the students who will be assessed during the two testing dates.
In Geography & History 7 we are wrapping up our exploration on Latin American countries. Students were assigned a country and had the opportunity to explore it's culture! They learned about the history, language, government and culture about their specific country! Once they learned, they embedded their knowledge into a powerpoint presentation! We were able to explore countries like Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Colombia and many many more! Through our Culture & Diversity Unit we also learned more about each other! Students shared their own cultures and traditions they do with their families. So many of us have very similar celebrations at home!

Book Recommendation of the Week:
What happens when a broken doll is touched by stardust? She becomes a ghost doll, of course! The newly awakened Ghost Doll and her companion Jasper, a mangy black cat, set off in search of a safe place to live. But the city is new and dangerous territory for Ghost Doll (who fell asleep in quieter times). The noise and rush of traffic terrifies her, and as for the new style of toy—complete with computer chip and battery—she can’t think of anything worse. But there is something far more sinister and dangerous lurking in the city. Someone else witnessed the falling star and is anxious to get a hold of the fragment—and Ghost Doll—for his own evil purposes. How will Ghost Doll and Jasper escape their hunter and find a home where they both are safe and loved?

8th graders attending Foothill High School:
It's hard to believe that the time is almost here for us to begin course planning for next school year! Mrs.(Cady) Burkhardt and Mrs. Bush have visited all 6th and 7th grade ELA classes and did a Course Planning and Career Exploration lesson with students. If you missed the lesson, it is imperative that you turn in your Google form for your elective choice. Here are the Google codes for your elective choices:
6th graders going to 7th grade- https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdb4cdQzDNABMYtc5erPFgTHvXCKyi9RtAu1RMA4h0lW5A2tw/viewform
7th graders going to 8th grade-https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfS5C52QNYSWt7pPdwzl4Qq9rr0uaP0Zc8_jDz0QPtSB7LG0g/viewform
Students that do not turn in an elective form will be assigned an elective and no changes will be made in the fall when schedules are already developed. Also, be sure to review your transcript on Infinite Campus, under reports, and unofficial transcript to see if you met the promotion requirements. Here is a link to the CCSD promotion/retention policy: https://ccsd.net/departments/guidance-counseling/graduation-and-promotion
Mrs. (Cady) Burkhardt will be presenting the CCSD Moving On Guide later in March. She will also be coordinating with Basic High School and Foothill for 8th graders as they transition to high school. Once dates are confirmed, they will be posted.
