The first quarter is rapidly coming to a close- as usual, there is much to do, and little time left!

On our educational radar now:

1. This week we have our final quiz on the literary terms; the first class of the week will be taken up with this task.

2. The memoirs are well on the way.  We have two due dates for the memoir: the first is Wednesday, October 8, where the students will need a printed ‘hard’ copy to share at our Reading Carnival in the Little Theater.  This is the time when everyone’s work will be available for peer reading. The final due date is Thursday/Friday Oct 9-10, when the final product will be handed in to me.

3. Stevi Quate, specialist on Reader’s and Writer’s Workshops, will visit our school during the week of September 29-October 3. She will join the MS English team during the week, sharing her expertise with the teachers by applying the workshop model to our time together.  For parents, Stevi is hosting a parent coffee on Tuesday, September 30 at 7:30 where she will give ideas and advice to parents about how you can help to make your children better readers and writers. Please contact the MS office for more details.

4. CWW is upon us! Although it is not an English class, please encourage your son or daughter to take a book to Caliraya.
