Happy New Year!

I look forward to another semester with your child. Hopefully your holiday season was enjoyable and allowed your son or daughter to recharge before the Spring semester. Below you will find our current topics of study and a reminder of the monthly reading. Thank you for supporting your child as we strive to read, write, and think critically.

Reading Focus

Writing Focus

Persuasive: Taking a Stand

  • Appeal to parents
  • Appeal to school

Monthly Choice Book

Students are responsible to read one book per month. Their first in class assessment will be February 6th. This means students should select a book of choice (non-fiction, fiction, drama, poetry, etc.) and read, completing the work by the 6th. On that day, or soon after, students will share their response to the text during class.
