Who can believe we are in Trimester 2 of the school year? We have enjoyed reading a novel, Pictures of Hollis Woods, holding Speech Contest #1, studying poetry, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, short essays, and current events. Speech contest #2 has the topic of "What is your favorite book?"
Please refer to your monthly paper calendar for most homework assignments and exams. It is sometimes modified due to holidays and assemblies. An organizational tip is to purchase a very large desk calendar and list homework and tests in all your subjects, extracurricular activities, and fun family times for the month.
Enjoy the winter season.
You are an awesome 8th Grade!
