What's happening in class?

***This week will be a little crazy, schedule wise!:) On Tuesday, all 8th graders will be taking the Explore test during 1st-4th hours, but will have their regular classes 5th-8th. On Wednesday, we have early dismissal, so students will meet with all of their classes, but only briefly. Dismissal on Wednesday is at 11:30 A.M.

In language arts, we will be starting our next essay. This essay will be an expository essay, in the form of a character sketch. Students will be selecting a friend or family member to "sketch" through words.

In reading, we will continue reading the novel, The Outsiders. The socs, lead by Bob, did decide to take out their anger on the greasers, and Ponyboy and Johnny ended up being easy targets! Johnny, in order to save Ponyboy's life, stabs and kills Bob, and now, the two greasers are on the run............Tune in later to find out what happens next!

***The first quiz for The Outsiders will be on Friday, October 19th, and it will cover chapters 1-5.
