We are PARCC Testing on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure our students are well-rested, have eaten a good breakfast and at school on time.

As we finish our riveting class novel this week, we are struck by how much we have come to know the characters, understood their conflicts and have connected to the themes of the love of family, the bonds of friendship, the injustices of racism, and what we would sacrifice to help another.  We have learned about the author's craft and style and have practiced the important skill of finding evidence in the text to support our answers and inferences. We will be sad to say goodbye to the Logans, but are the better for having met them through literature.

 Our discussions have been rich, and our analysis of characters and events have been profound. I am so proud of our students' deep thinking and engaged reading of this classic novel.

For due dates on assignments and tests, please refer to the calendar page.

Have a great week!
