Remember we have a fundraising collection going on right now.  In middle school this will be recorded in our 6th period classes. 
Box Tops, Labels for Education and Longmont Dairy Milk Caps
Announcing our first Box Top, Labels for Education and Longmont Dairy Milk Cap class competition for the year; the contest will run from September 21st thru October 2nd. Gather all of the box tops, labels and milk caps that you've been collecting all summer, put them in a bag (include the name of your teacher) and drop them in the main collection box near the elevator or deliver to your child’s homeroom teacher. Each of these items earns our school $$ or points towards valuable school equipment. The winning class (es) for each category (Box Tops, Labels for Education and Longmont Dairy Milk Caps) will earn a party of their choice: Ice Cream, Root Beer Floats, Pizza or Doughnuts. Careful cutting and examination of expiration dates is appreciated as are clean milk caps! Full UPCs must be included on Labels for Education labels.

Remember you have 13 entries due by 10/4 in your Writer's Notebooks.  This is a place to record your ideas, thoughts, feelings, wonderings, ponderings, on-going stories, etc.however it is not a diary or journal.  Remember each entry must be at least 20 minutes of writing and you should complete at least 2 entries each week.  We will have a Writer's Notebook check around 20 entries.

We have started reading our novels.  L2 is reading The Giver and L3 is reading The Outsiders.  Please make sure that you are looking at the right section for information about our reading assignments. We will be reading rather quickly due to Cheley and conferences. If you need audio book assistance, please let me know.

L2 will start reading today with partners the first three chapters. We will be discussing these chapters on Wednesday.  Thursday will be a reading day and students need to make it to chapter 9 by class time Friday with sticky notes. There will be reading homework over the weekend - students need to read and sticky note to chapter 13 by class time Monday.

L3 will continue reading chapters 5-8 today in class.  We will also be working on our character sketches.  Due to Cheley we will finish reading the book by the end of the week.  Students will have time to work on their character sketches next week when we return from Cheley.

Please check out the middle school page if you need the packing list for next week. 

Have a great week!
