This week, we finished Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds, and we'll be reading Ghost by Reynolds next week - the author is visiting in November! We also are wrapping up a bit of grammar instruction. We'll be assessing how we're doing next week, even though the true reflection is in their writing pieces. Mrs. Rehberger and I also going to begin meeting with students 1:1 to discuss what the final grade for the first quarter should be, while looking at our evidence on PowerSchool.
