April 25-29, 2022 and Welcome Back!

April 24, 2022 Divine Mercy Sunday
Dear Families in Rm. 9 Homeroom, Reading and LA Rm. 7 and Rm. 9, and 7-3/7-6 Reading,
HELLO! Welcome back!  This will be a great, fun week.  I hope everyone returns rested and happy, and ready for a great end of the year. On Wednesday, students will Purple UP! Interims will go out on April 29th. Please return the signed green sheet by Thursday instead of Friday this week, I will be out on Friday for a funeral. Thank you!
Re: asynchronous work, it is all due on May 2nd. There were seemingly a lot of questions about the Reading digital one-pager, and of course the students will have the opportunity to ask those questions when they are here in school.
In 6th LA, we will begin our new grammar unit, Sentences.  We will continue with our Trickster Tale from Asynchronous and then write our original myth. In Reading, we are independently reading Greek myths as well as in our small group Literature Circles. In 6th grade, the new novels will be The Water Castle by Megan Frazer Blakemore, and The Inquisitors Tale, by Adam Gidwitz. In Religion, we will begin Chapter 17, Judges. 
In 7th grade Reading, the new novels for Literature Circles are Lord of the Flies by William Golding and Woods Runner by Gary Paulsen. 
Best wishes for a beautiful Sunday!  It's gorgeous out there!
Mrs. Morgan
