Welcome to the first full week of the school year :)

We will be MAPs testing on Monday.  Please bring a book to read with you to class so you can read when your finish the test.  

We will be finishing our metaphor name tags and giving our speeches of introduction on Tuesday and Wednesday.  We will start thinking about our personal narratives with an activity Thursday and Friday.

We started our Writer's Notebooks last week.  Students have one entry due by 8/23.  We will have two entries every week.  Students should be writing for at least 20 minutes for each entry.  Your Writer's Notebook is a place to record your thoughts, ideas, wonderings, ponderings, on going stories, short stories, etc.  Remember it is not a diary or journal.

Picture day is Tuesday.  You should get your order forms from your 6th hour.

You will have a letter of introduction to me due on Wednesday, we will talk more about what to include in that letter on Tuesday.

Anyone interested in being involved in Student Council this year is invited to a lunch meeting on Wednesday in Ms. Krill's room.

A ring was found downstairs by the lockers.  If you are missing one, come see me to describe it to see if it is yours. 

Have a great week. :)
