Dear Parents,

Here's the latest news from school!


A big thank you to Mrs. Bamberg for teaching English 7 while Mrs. Garver continues to recuperate at home. The students will continue to study the elements of narrative stories this week. This will culminate in a paper answering the question "How do elements of a story interact?". For example, how does the setting effect the problem in the story? You can find more specific information about the weekly plans on Mrs. Garver's website.

If a student needs to retake the assessment, he/she may do so during lunch time on Monday or Wednesday, or Thursday after school from 3:10-4:00pm.
