Welcome to Eighth-Grade!

The Book Fair is here!!

The annual Scholastic Book Fair has arrived! The book fair is up and running, and will continue to Friday, October 27. I will be bringing my eighth-grade classes to the book fair on Friday, but that is not the only way to shop. You can visit our school book fair website to find more titles and deals. As an ELA teacher, I cannot overstate the importance of choice in independent reading, and I work hard to include a wide variety of selections in my classroom library. The book fair helps us do that. So, feel free to browse the site or come in to the book fair in our school library and buy books for your student or purchase a book or books to donate to our classroom! Thanks, as always, for your support.


It is hard to believe, but the last year of middle school is upon us! I am looking forward to another productive year at Center Drive School. Some things we can look forward to are the Maine Studies trip, making incredible book trailers, a mock-trial held in a real courtroom with real judges and lawyers, and a formal debate- yes, you too will have the opportunity to learn how to argue to win! Announcements about upcoming events in ELA will be located on the "What's Happening in ELA" page.

Of course, another big part of this final year at CDS is graduation and our class day. This is made possible by, and completely determined by fundraising. Basically, the more fundraising we do the better the day is. I am the class graduation adviser and will be asking for volunteers throughout the school year. This website will be a great place to see announcements and requests for help. I have created a page specifically for this purpose, but I will also be emailing announcements. I thank you in advance for helping make our class day and graduation a success!
