Looking Ahead

American History

In American History we will be covering The Kansas-Nebraska Act, Bleeding Kansas and John Brown. We will have a quiz on Thursday which will cover: abolitionists, the Underground Railroad, Slave Rebellions, Bleeding Kansas with John Brown. Quiz grades from their Slavery, Immigration and Women’s Rights Quiz have been put in the grade book. Students will be able to make correction up to full credit. They will need to make these corrections during lunch on Monday or Tuesday with Mrs. Pugh.

EnglishStudents will be reading a non-fiction article on Monday and begin thinking about the question “what shapes our morality”? The rest of the week will be devoted to brainstorming and writing an essay covering this topic. It is worth a lot of points for this grading period.

Please remember

Students need to replace school supplies through the year as they are used up. We have nearly gone through our supply of pencils and highlighters for them to borrow.Students are responsible for classes they miss for school related events. They need to speak with each teacher and get any work they will miss BEFORE they attend the event. They do not get extra time for missing class for these reasons.

Box Tops For Education!

Don’t forget to send in your box tops! Mr. Barstow has sheets for the students to tape 10 box tops on and turn in. If you send your box tops in, we will get them on the sheets for you!
