This second set of parent teacher
conferences will be led primarily by our students.
Doing so allows them the opportunity to evaluate their own
effort and performance as well as to set achievable goals. As
parents and teachers, then, we can more directly address and
support their individual needs and perspectives.
Four eighth graders, who have been
selected to participate in the L.E.A.D. organization, have created
a service project. Our service project focuses on delicious
ice-cream sundaes which supports the Ozaukee County K9 Unit. To
participate in this event, purchase a ticket for a minimum donation
of $1.00 before school on January 25, 28, and 29 by the trophy case
in the South Wing. Once you have purchased a ticket, bring it to
lunch on January 31 to receive your ice cream sundae! All donations
directly support the Ozaukee County K9 Unit. (You can find more
information about this organization on this link).

Literature: We will
continue reading our Historical Fiction novels, paying special
attention to how the conflicts the characters face not only
teach us how to read more deeply -- understanding
character,setting, and author's purpose -- but they also give us
insight into the actual historical event or circumstance serving as
the context for the novel.
Please note that I will be checking the Reading
Log Calendars and the depth of students' thinking regularly, giving
a grade for completion as well as an explanation of their thinking
through both POSTs and responses on Google Classroom.
Continue to read 20 - 25 minutes per night
(usually Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays), posting where points in
the text reveal how the conflicts -- historical, those in the
storyline, and those inside the character -- shape characters.
Intentionally thinking about our characters and setting in
this way will better help us understand life outside of the novel
and perhaps even our own experience.
Spanish News from Ms.
- Chapter 4A is behind us and we can
look towards 4B! Google Classroom this week, due the 23rd, delivers
a balance between old and new. We'll look forward to learning even
more verbs and how they conjugate.
- Begin studying those new vocab
words now in preparation for future quizzes later on!!
Have a wonderful week!
