Literary Nonfiction Piece

In class, students are working on a piece of literary nonfiction. Their finished story must include dialogue, sensory details, thoughtshots, effective paragraphing, and both expressive and reflective writing. This is not a homework assignment. However, if they are absent or get behind in class, they may need to work at home or during Excel to finish. We will be turning in the finished products during class on Tuesday, October 22nd.

Photo Retakes

Picture retakes are Tuesday, 10/22 during lunch. If you have your original photo packet, bring it. If you need a new one, go to the office.

If you would like to order a book from one of the Scholastic catalogues, please submit your order by Friday, September 27th. You may order online (classroom code QMDGD) or bring a paper order form and cash or a check made out to Scholastic.
