The students will finish reading To Kill a Mockingbird this week.  They will watch the movie version, write an essay, take a short-answer test, and create a final project.  All assignment information was given on Monday, March 27.  

We have started our annual Lenten project, which is to spend some time on the website, Freerice.com.  On this website, students answer trivia questions based on academic subjects.  For every correct answer, 10 grains of rice are donated to the United Nations World Food Programme.  7th and 8th grade will be competing against each other to see which grade donates the most rice.  At the end of Lent, I will tally the numbers, and the winning grade will have a pizza party.  Students should enjoy the website knowing that they are helping to feed someone in need in the world.  I put an assignment on Google Classroom with the link to join the group.  Or, you can sign on and go under "Groups," then "Find Groups."  Classes are listed as Grade 7 2017 and Grade 8 2017.  Good luck!

Students should be reading 15-20 minutes each night and completing their active reading charts on their reading logs.  Reading logs are checked each Wednesday and are submitted at the end of each month.  Make sure you are diligent and thorough in completing your logs.  The March reading log is due on Monday, April 3.  

Students should begin working on their book report for this month which is due on Wednesday, April 26.

Extra help for English Language Arts will meet on Mondays from 2:45 to 3:30 in Room 202.  Any students with questions are welcome to come for extra help.

Journalism club meets on Tuesdays after school from 2:45-3:45 in Room 202.   All students are welcome!
