8th Grade News





  • Mr. Gross:
  • Mr. Hayes: Following state testing, we will look back and reflect on this year's content by collaborating with other students to create movie posters for the 10 units of study covered this year. Following that, we will also work to create a fictionalized memorial for an event covered in US history this year. Time permitting, we will then put together our Portfolio Project writing assignments and then create a Google Site website to showcase our work.
