Ms. Egan’s Newsletter 3/12

Hello Middle School Families!

This week, 7th and 8th grade finished up their Black History Month projects in language arts. These were due Friday when students shared their project through a gallery walk around the classroom. Next week, we will begin writing poetry!

5th and 6th grade are finishing up their Bud, Not Buddy opinion essays. Next week, we will be focusing on grammar and sentence structure, as well as continuing with creative story prompts. Students will be turning these stories into books with illustrations!

Both US History and Ancient Civilizations had tests this past week. Ancient Civilizations just finished the Ancient Hebrews unit and we will be moving from the Middle East into Asia for Ancient India and China. US History finished up the presidencies of Washington and Adams, and will begin Thomas Jefferson’s presidency on Monday.

7th Grade Parents: There will be a parent meeting in my classroom at 7:00pm on Wednesday, 3/14 regarding the 8th grade dinner. See you then!

DC Trip: Megan Prieto and I will receive the finalized itinerary this coming week and will hold the meeting the following week.

Field Trip: Middle School we be going on a Field trip on Tuesday, 3/13 for a religious concert at St. Michael’s.

Report Cards: Report cards went home on Friday. Feel free to send me an email if you would like to set up a meeting either before or after school. Please sign the report card envelope and return it by Tuesday 3/13.

*Please note that students should be printing their assignments at home. Teachers will not be printing their assignments for them. If a printer isn’t working, students should hand write their assignments unless it is required to be typed (essays and projects must be typed, other homework can be handwritten or typed). A broken printer is not an excuse to not turn in homework.

*Please also make sure your student has a sufficient amount of binder paper, pens, and pencils. We’re at the time of year when supplies begin to run out, so please encourage your student to be mindful of the amount of supplies he/she has and to communicate when he/she needs more.
