NEW!!!

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CONTACT THE OFFICE IF YOUR STUDENT NEEDS TO MISS CLASS FOR ANY REASON. We get emails from students, and not that we don’t trust the students, but it is still best to get this information from the parents’/guardians’ email addresses. It’s best to also email/call the office, because if your student is absent and the office doesn’t hear from you, they will mark it as an unexcused absence. Please contact: banks.earline@wgmail.org


Please let us know if you need anything or your child is having any issues with technology or their assignments. We are here to help!

Classroom Happenings

ELA- Mr. Jones

This week we gave our main character life by giving the character physical traits and personality traits. Students also completed a story arc which basically outlines the plot.


Next week, being a short week, we will have one day to continue drafting our stories and one day of reading an independent book.


Science- Mrs. Creath

We took a quiz over Eclipses this week and students started a project where they are to make a model of an eclipse. The instructions for this are on Canvas (click on Modules, look for “8.7 Eclipse Model Project” or by clicking here. The project is due on Tuesday, Nov. 24th. Our next topic we will be covering is seasons and why they occur. Students will be learning about how the intensity of light changes throughout the year and how that causes seasons. Please let me know if you have any questions. creath.leslie@wgmail.org

Social Studies- Mr. Cahn

This week we’ve been in a mini-culture unit on the 1930s and students have gotten to experience Jazz and Swing hits, as well as film clips from that time period. They also learned about some barrier breakers of the 1930s like Jesse Owens, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, and Marian Anderson.


Our short week next week will be a wrap up of this mini unit and Summative Assessment revisions will be due Tuesday (Nov. 24) just prior to Thanksgiving Break.


Following Thanksgiving Break we’ll get into our last big unit of the semester — Conflict.
