  • Wk of 1/8/18
    Winter MAP Testing will be Tuesday 1/9 - Thursday 1/11.  Students should get plenty of sleep and a good breakfast each morning in order to perform their best.  The data from these tests help guide teachers' instruction to meet our students where they are and move them forward.  It is is important that the students put forth 100% effort.  

    The Article of the Week homework assignment resumed last week.  The current article is due Tuesday 1/9.

    There are no parent-teacher conferences scheduled, but if you would like to meet regarding your child's report card and/or performance in English, please send me an email (kimbriggs@campbell.k12.va.us) or call 239-9267, and I will return your call to schedule a convenient meeting time with you.

    Students will be not be given an Article of the Week assignment this week or next week.  Mrs. Briggs is out of copies for the remainder of first semester :(  I'm sure my students will be delighted to hear this!  Enjoy your free time :)  

    For the remainder of 2nd quarter, we will be working on nonfiction text structures and narrative elements in fiction and drama.  We are continuing work on affixes and vocabulary in context.  Please encourage your child to visit IC often to keep a check on averages and missing assignments as we close in on 2nd semester.
