Dear STM Families of students in Homeroom 6-9, Reading and LA 6-8 and 6-9 and Reading 7-3 and 7-6,
Blessings on this rainy day! 
Interims: Please ask your student for the blue STM conduct interims sent home on Friday.  They should be returned, signed, by the end of the week.  If you have concerns regarding the conduct interim, please send me an email!
Picture Day - Tomorrow is Individual Picture Day, and the students will wear their regular school uniform with sneakers and socks.  The order forms went home last week via your students so be sure to ask your student for the order form.
Scholastic Book Orders - Speaking of order forms - I will be sending home Scholastic TAB (Middle School) book order forms.  Scholastic Books Clubs offer a terrific number of awesome reading choices, and provide excellent value.  The Clubs also offer free books for the classroom, based on the amount of books purchased.  We LOVE getting the Scholastic box in the mail!  Send in a paper order form or order online at https://clubs.scholastic.com/home  F94QY is the order code!
Detention/Make-Up Tests - alternating Wednesday afternoons are set aside for detention and make-up tests.  Each homeroom teacher will host his/her own students to keep the cohorts separate.  Detention begins this Wednesday, October 14, from 3:30-4:30pm.  Students will be dismissed from Door 2!
Mass - The class Mass for 6-9 is this upcoming week, October 16.  The class Mass for 6-7 is October 23.  Please join us if you can, Friday mornings at 10am in the Cathedral.
Classroom News- The 6th graders have completed two writing assignments in Reading/LA.  One piece is a short essay on Manners,  and a lengthier personal narrative.  We will continue content editing "behind the scenes" on Google Classroom.  In class we will begin Pronouns in Grammar and Word List 3 in Vocabulary.  We are reading Song for a Whale, by Lynn Kelly, in 6-9 and We Are Not From Here, by Geoff Rodkey, in 6-7.  7th graders are enjoying our class novel Zero Tolerance by Claudia Mills and continuing lessons in compare/contrast and fact/opinion. 
Back to School Night Videos - Videos were created for Virtual Back To School Night and were emailed last Monday at 5pm.  I hope that you had a few moments to watch the presentations from the teachers!
Race for Education is next week! 
Have a great week!
Mrs. Morgan
