Weekly Announcements

August, 2017 Update:

Bring a book the first day of school.

Hello rising 8th graders! I am looking forward to meeting my new students.

For the first week of school you will need a binder with paper, a composition book, pen or pencils, and most important, a book for independent reading.

We will have our first library day on Friday, Sept. 1, but you will need to have a book to read in class before then. There are some books in our classroom library that you can borrow.

I am working on updating the pages on this site, so not all information is current for this year. Please feel free to email me if you have questions.
