Family Letters

In past years, I have had each student write a family letter to share with their parents. This year, one student will write a letter to all families that will be posted below at the end of each week. Ideas shared in the letters come from students and are written by students using strategies, skills, and tools from writing class. I do not edit these pieces, but I am available as a resource for students if they'd like me to look it over with them.

Thanks to Liliana for writing our third letter! Click below.
