Monday, September 30th

HOW is it the LAST Monday in September?!

Reminders for the upcoming week:

Selfie projects were due Friday, September 13. Students who have not submitted a project were sent an email reminder through Google Classroom.

Reading Journals from last Monday are due TODAY!

A new Reading Journal was handed out today; it will be due Monday, October 7th.

A new Greek Roots list was handed out today. The words are: CIRCUM, INTER, TRANS, EX. Last week’s words were: ANTI, TELE, OLOGY, UN.

There will be a Greek Roots Quiz on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11TH. Students have study sheets; if they lose them, there are pictures of the sheets in Google Classroom. I recommend making flashcards to study. We will do a Kahoot to review in class the day before the quiz!!


Library time is scheduled every week (mostly on Friday). I am happy to send students to the library before Friday if it is needed.Students may check out 3 library books at one time. Students must have a barcode on their planner to check out a book until we have student ID’s.

Students who are one or more minutes late to class will be marked Tardy. At 3 tardies, I will contact home via email, and copy the front office on the email. At 4 tardies, students will be referred to the office AND serve detention.

We have a student from Wayne State University with us for the entire school year! She will be doing her pre student teaching this semester (so observing, working in small groups, helping with planning, presenting 4 lessons) and her student teaching in the second half of the school year.

Please add yourselves to our classroom Remind account! I will be sending important information throughout the year via Remind text. Use the link: OR text the message @h8cchc to 831-613-1863

Email is the best way to contact me. My email is:

Please check Student Connect and Parent connect frequently. Parent Connect requires a PIN number and a Password to login. Student Connect requires a username and a password to login. The office secretaries can provide you with the PIN number for Parent Connect!!

This week, we are: learning how to make and fill in the parts of a plot diagram; watching Pixar shorts to review this concept and practice it; discussing 1st and 3rd person point of view in stories.
