What's happening in class?

***On Tuesday of this week, October 7th, the 8th graders will be taking the EXPLORE test. This is a standardized test required by DGS. It allows DGS to gauge the ability of all incoming freshmen from the various feeder schools. The test will be given at Lakeview by the 8th grade teachers, and the test will run from 1st through 4th hours.

In language arts this week, we will continue with verbs. The verb quiz originally scheduled for last week will now be given this week. I felt the need for some reteaching of subject matter, and believe that students will officially be "verb ready" on Friday, which is the new verb quiz date.

Students will also receive their teacher edited narrative essays back on Wednesday of this week, and the final draft essays will be due on Friday!

In reading, we will continue to read and discuss the novel, Monster.

And......AR book report quizzes are due on or before Thursday, October 16th!
