Spring has sprung!!!
Unbelievably, the third marking period has almost come to a close. The last official day of the marking period is March 30th. This week we will be completing our third round of book projects for our independent reading.
Additionally, we will be on the verge of finishing To Kill a Mockingbird. The final test and writing assignment will be placed upon the fourth marking period’s grades.
Our next unit will continue examining the themes of prejudice and discrimination as we read Elie Wiesel’s memoir of the Holocaust entitled Night.
