What's happening in class?

I hope you enjoyed a day off in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday!

In language arts this week, we are beginning a mini drama unit. Groups of 4-5 students will create and perform one act plays developed around a chosen THEME.

All organizing, creating and practicing will be done at school. Memorization of lines and gathering of clothes for costumes will be done at home. NO PRACTICING WITH GROUPS OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL WILL BE REQUIRED.

In reading this week, we will finish The Outsiders. Due to several emotional and physical issues including the deaths of both Johnny and Dally, and suffering from a concussion from an injury he received during the rumble, Ponyboy collapsed. After 4 days of being in and out of consciousness, he is finally coming back physically, but is he ready to handle the emotional stress of reality yet? How will the trial go? Will his brother and he be separated? Tune in to find out...............

The Outsiders final test is scheduled for Friday, January 25th.

Here's to a new week and a new chapter in history! I hope both are good ones!
