What's Happening in Class

7th Grade

Students are reviewing the vast genres of literature and texts that we have studied this year in preparation for the Reading STAAR test next week.

8th Grade

Students are excited and taking action on campus in the weeks to come! Having spent quite some time discussing the idea of "indifference" during our Holocaust study, we are coming together as a team in 8th grade GT to implement a school-wide campaign that fights indifference while promoting kindness and heroism. Ask your students what they are doing because I am so proud of what they are working on! Students are collaborating in teams to create and implement the campaign and monitor progress along the way.

Vocabulary

The Units 13-14 Test for all grade levels will be on FRIDAY, May 11th.


This is the last vocabulary assessment for the year! Finish Strong!


Reminder: The vocabulary schedule is available on both Google Classroom and Moodle. The schedule includes all quiz and test dates for the entire year. Though vocabulary workbook activities are not a requirement and will not be taken for a grade, they are the recommended method for studying. We will review the activities in class the Wednesday before each quiz, so students should plan to complete the activities prior to class that day.

Tutorials

Thursdays 8:10-8:40


Lunch tutorials available by appointment.


Please Note: Students should schedule tutorials with Mrs. Davis 24 hours in advance to obtain a tutorials pass.
