6th graders are continuing to read Where the Red Fern Grows and will be half way done with the book this week. There will be no test or quiz this week but homework will be scheduled for Monday and Tuesday to answer chapter questions for Chapters 9 & 10. We are also working on writing effective paragraphs which requires bringing their ELA textbook everyday. We are covering Chapter 19 and completing in-class exercises on this skill.
AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES – We remind parents that ALL after school activities will begin at 3:15 p.m. and will end at 4: 15 p.m. We ask parents to be prompt in picking the students up from after school activities.
