Mill Creek Cluster Coat Drive
This month, all the Mill Creek Cluster schools are having a coat drive for a local homeless and children’s shelter in Gwinnett County. Bins will be put downstairs to collect the coats. Our goal for each school is 100 coats for the month of October; this will be a total of 900 coats by the end of the month!
Red Ribbon Week!
Upcoming and Continuing Units of Study
We have started looking at Figurative Language and studying different ways it is used to make a point and emphasize your meaning. Students will be tested on the types of figurative language at the end of next week.
Students took a pretest on Sort #21, and the test over these words will be Wednesday. New word study words will be introduced Thursday. Every student was given a list of spelling/word study words and the days they will be tested for the whole nine weeks to keep in their folders. We hope this will make the process easier for all!
We will be finishing with the second half of our Reconstruction after the Civil War unit. The reconstruction test is planned for next Wednesday. There is also a link to the Quizlet below. Study guides went home this week and students should have several resources to pull from. Study guide is linked below.
