The Hall Way...

Third quarter is moving along and now would be a good time to check in with your student about their progress in their classes. Are they completing all of their assigned work? Is their work organized or is it time to clean out their binder or folders? Do they need to ask any of their teachers for extra help? Please encourage them to BE HONEST with themselves on their progress so they can finish the quarter strong.

6th Grade News

The 6th grade team is encouraging our students to start taking ownership for their education. It is hard to believe they will be 7th graders in a few short months, and we want to make sure they are prepared for next year. This includes having them email their teachers if they have questions or concerns, checking their grades in Home Access daily for missing assignments, and emailing their teachers if they are absent to see what they need to do from missing school. Please help us in supporting these behaviors at home, and encouraging your student(s) to do the above.

8th Grade

8th grade students from Mr. Wilson's dual-language literacy class wrote books on leaders who fought for human rights. Students investigated the leaders' influences and actions, and then explained how we might continue on with the legacy of the person. On Thursday, the students shared their books with 3rd graders from Ms. Gomberg's class at Mary Endres. Coming soon these students' booklets will also be on display at the Woodstock Public Library. Make sure to congratulate our authors on their hard work ¡Muy bien hecho!
