It was great meeting parents at the Open House 9/22. Communication between school and home really promotes student success.Thank you to all students and their families for completing the survey. Halfway through September, we are in the middle of the short story unit; the essential question is, "What makes a great story great?" Your student has chosen an independent reading book, which s/he should complete by the end of October. All sophomores created poems of praise, which you can see on 9/22 at the Open House. We are in the process of editing character sketches. I have enjoyed getting to know your students the first few weeks of school.
