    Article of the Week homework assignments are now in full swing.  A new article will be distributed every Wednesday and due the following Tuesday.  Students are expected to thoroughly annotate the article and respond in writing to focus questions.  A Reading grade and a Writing grade will be earned for each article.  Scoring rubrics will be attached, and students have an overview sheet in their binder noting clear expectations for these assignments.  They should also have several modeled examples of articles we've completed in class to assist them.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

    A Scholastic Book Club order form will be sent home 9/24.  You can order online or send the order form with payment back in to me.  This is an easy way to get great books in the hands of your middle schooler!  Your orders through Scholastic also allow me to grow our classroom library with books your kids want to read.  Please consider helping us out :)  Open the flyer for more details.

    Welcome to 7th Grade!  Check back periodically for classroom updates and new resources.  Students have access all year to the folder titled "Instructional Resources" which allows them to print another copy of a lost homework assignment.  Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns regarding your child's English instruction.

    The English 7 SOL Test is Tuesday 5/1 and the English 6 SOL Test is Wednesday 5/2 .  We are preparing for these important assessments in class.  Students have a packet with relevant vocabulary to review at home.  Please email me with any questions or concerns.  I am confident they will be successful if they give 100% next week :)  Please ensure that your child gets plenty of rest and a good breakfast on test mornings.  Thank you for your support!

    The English 7 Reading SOL Test is 5/1, and the English 6 Reading SOL Test is 5/2.  In preparation for this important testing, students will be working on vocabulary and SOL terminology over the next 3 weeks.  There will be no Article of the Week assigned during this time.  Students have the review packets in their English binders and are expected to have them in class everyday.  Points will be deducted for not having their packets.  Homework will be assigned a couple nights during the week within the packet.  Friday quizzes on terms will be graded.
