April & May
More coming soon. Students have just finish using the past tense to create writings about past events. We will practice with all tenses as we talk about culture through immigration.
Starting in January we will be welcoming a student teacher to our classroom. Mr. Derek Jackson, from Adrian College, will be with us until the end of February. The students have already had a chance to get to know him a little as he spent time with us before our extended winter break. Your child may also have gotten to know him as he participated in a writing workshop here at the 7/8 building. Your child will be bringing home a letter from Mr. Jackson with some more information about him and what he will be doing. There is also a portion of the paper he would like back with your signature as this will be awarded credit.

This Thursday we will be holding our rescheduled parent-teacher conferences for the 2nd Trimester. Because of the change and a previously scheduled conference, I am sorry to say that I will not be in attendance this Thursday. If you would like to discuss your child’s progress with me please sign up on the list at my table at conferences or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get a hold of you.
If you would like to meet our student teacher, Mr. Jackson, he will be here during conferences so please come by to also say hello to him. He will be here to gain experiences with conferences and meet you. On the subject of grades, last Friday Mr. Jackson call the students up to go through their grades and were given any missing work so they should be aware of anything they need to improve in the class.
