    Parent Conferences,Tuesday, Nov. 19th, 5:30-7:30 pm.

    Dear Parents and Guardians: 


    Students have been working very hard to complete writing assignments in class. We continue to stress the importance of citing evidence from the text when making a claim about a literary piece. Theme has been another focus. Students are making connections between myths, non-fiction articles, and The Lightning Thief. Please make sure that your student is completing their five See Readers each week. Student have finished reading The Lightning Thief, so it is very important that they continue reading at home. As we finish the module, students will be working on a culminating narrative writing project. 

    Please make every effort to make an appointment to come see me regarding your student's progress in ELA at Parent/Teacher Conferences, November 19th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm



    1. Students are assigned five See Readers a week. They get time in school to complete this work. These readings count toward          their grade, so please encourage them to complete the readings. I am here early if they need to come before school to work. 

    2. Students should be reading what they love and what is on their reading level at home. Take them to the library and invite them        to take out books they are interested in.

    3. Always make sure students get plenty of sleep.
