HAPPY New Year!🎉

It's a new year and we are striving to continue to do all things with excellence in 2019!

We have finished up our first novel A Long Walk To Water  by Linda Sue Park and are going to be concentrating on figurative language, research simulation writing tasks,  analyzation of paired  texts, literary elements in drama and more. 

PARCC practice  - will be going on  weekly as will our continuation of our Focus Skill small group intervention time based off of our STAR 360 benchmarks.

February will bring a Black History Research Project and our 3rd STAR 360 benchmark testing.
