Monday, October 28th

Happy Monday! Our weather is slowly getting colder – I heard it might snow on Thursday!

ALL LATE WORK SHOULD HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED ON THE 25TH! Unless a student had a medical excuse, they cannot submit late work now.


Students are working on a summative writing task that is due TODAY. It only needs to be 2-3 paragraphs (10-20 sentences) in order to be handed in. Some time in class will be given to work on this assignment; however, since it is very short, students can also work at home. Students had the opportunity last week to have their work edited by a peer, so that changes could be made before submitting their work. A rubric is available in Google Classroom, along with a copy of the story for reference.

The next Greek Roots quiz will be FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1st.

Students will have a SUMMATIVE Greek Roots quiz over the first 24 words on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21ST. All the sheets are available in Google classroom, in case theirs have been “misplaced”.

Students will have a quiz over identifying nouns, verbs, and adjectives in sentences on Wednesday, October 30th. We do this every week in class, so students have had LOTS of practice!


Parent teacher Conferences are Monday, November 11th and Wednesday, November 13th from 4:00-7.

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.

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:
