Students wrote poems in their English classes and then performed them for their class. Teachers selected students from their classes to perform their poems in the school Poetry Slam. Yesterday, 30 students shared their poems in the Slam. It was fun hear the students express themselves through poetry. It was amazing to see their creativity and courage to present in front of the panel that they did. A giant shout out to our English department for doing this fun activity with their students. It was a huge success!
9th Grade ACT Aspire Test: 9th grade students will take the ACT Aspire test on May 2 and May 3. It is essentially a practice test for the real ACT they will take in high school. Research shows that the more exposure that students have to the ACT the better they score. Encourage your student to be prepared by getting enough rest, eating a good breakfast and putting their best effort when taking the test.
End of Level Testing: This week is the 8th grade math test. Please continue to have your students get plenty of sleep and be prepared each day with their chromebook fully charged.
Yearbooks: You can still pre-order a yearbook at the finance office for $25. We will sell them until we run out. Order soon if you would like one!
