On Monday we had author Bryan Davis visiting with us to talk about his life as a published author.  He will also have some of his books available for purchase on Friday.  Your child may bring home an order form.

On Tuesday we are out of school to observe Veteran's Day. 

On Wednesday we will have our Second Step, Study Skills day.  We will still have electives on Wednesday and the times will be the same however we will be doing lessons from the Second Step program as well as some study skills.  We decided as a Middle School team that there wasn't a good way for us to make sure that every child received the lessons during advisory since not everyone has an advisory so we created 4 special days throughout the year to meet to ensure that every child gets the lessons from each of these programs

On  Thursday will be the Holes vocabulary test.  

We will also begin our next novel this week.

Students should be working on their Writer's Notebooks at home.  This is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc. They need to write in it 2 times a week for 10 minutes (Period 5) or 20 minutes (Period 6) each time. The next due date is Friday, December 12. They should have 10 more entries for a total of 30 entries.

I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily. If you cannot see the calendar, have your child look at their Google calendars as I have shared my assignment calendar with them
