As some of you start to check out Infinite Campus and your grades, please remember that Responsibility grades make up 10% of your grade.  Also remember that this is scored on a two point scale; if the homework is here in class completed at the start of class, it is two points; if it is partially completed, one point; and not complete or not here,  no points.  These points are earned at the time that I walk around and check homework, you can not earn them back.

If you are in book club elective, don't forget your reading material for Wednesday.  Also if you signed up to bring a tasty treat, please remember to bring it.  :)

I will be doing book orders, if you are interested, please see me.  Checks can be made out to Scholastic Book clubs or you can bring cash.  Please bring orders and money in by September 12.

Now that you have your community handbooks, please carefully read the section about dress code.  Some points to remember: no shoulders can be showing and shorts/skirts should reach at least to your finger tips when your arms hang naturally at you side.  Also undergarments should be under your garments. :)

Starting this week there will be information for my different classes, please be sure to look at your information.

We started our class novel this week: The Giver.  We will be reading and doing activities in and out of class for this novel.  If you have your own copy, you may bring it to class.  I am looking at possibly going to see the movie so we can do a book/film compare and contrast.

We have started our Writer's Notebooks. This is a place to record thoughts, ideas, ponderings, stories, ect. Students need to be writing for at least 20 minutes each entry and they need at least 2 entries per week. They should have 5 entries by 9/14. Students will keep their WN at home until we have a WN check, about every 20 entries or so.

Our vocab quiz will be on Thursday due to the field trip on Wednesday.

We will have a Read and Feed on Friday, please bring in non-peanuty treats to share with the group.  Our goal is to read and eat tasty treats during class that day.
