 Dear parents,

 

 

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year……..

 

School starts Thursday August 4, 2016.

 Orientation is Tuesday, August 2nd from 11:00-1:00 or 4:00-6:00.

Students can pick up their schedules from the gym and then meet their teachers.

IMPORTANT: Remember that students who were at the Charter School last year will receive a grade in their language arts class for their AR Goal.  Incoming sixth grade students had a goal of 10 points.  Any AR tests that the students take Thursday or Friday will count toward their summer AR goal.

 

See everyone Tuesday,

 

Ms. Windham

 

 Reading is a semester long class designed to help students with the challenging reading demands of middle school. There is no assigned textbook. Students will read a variety of short stories, newspaper and magazine articles, plays and study both Latin and Greek roots. Each week on Monday, the students will study a list of given roots with the quiz on Friday. 

Students will get a list of 10 words that contain the root in class on Monday. The quiz will be Friday. These root word quizzzes are 45% of the grades in this class. Students that study and score well on these assessments normally do well in this class.
