Happy Mothers’ Day!

Dear Eighth Grade Parents and Students,

HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!  I wish all our mothers at O.M.M.S., a very happy and special day, full of love, fun, surprises, and lots of laughter.  You are all AMAZING MOTHERS!  Every day, but especially today, MOTHERS’ DAY, you deserve to be pampered and put up on a pedestal of happiness.  ENJOY!

A big THANK YOU to all the parents who were involved in hosting Night at the Mission.  It is a huge undertaking, and every year you do an INCREDIBLE JOB!  MANY THANKS!

This week in literature, my Eighth Graders will continue to read The Odyssey, and discover how Odysseus plans to get rid of the  suitors.  In addition to this, they will continue to work on finishing their in-class workbooks.  We will also take a look at the “Cornell System of Note-Taking,” which they will need for high school.  We will continue with the SAT spelling words each week, in order to finish our SAT list.  Speeches are due on Wednesday, May 14.

I am happy to report that most of my Eighth Graders scored extremely high on their History Test last Friday.  Well done, Eighth Graders!  Hang in there, we are almost finished.   This week in history, we will finish Chapter 8, and prepare for the last History Test of the school year.

This week in religion class,  we have two pages to read in Family Life.  Then, my Eighth Graders will return to their religion book, We Live Our Faith, in which they will read about the Church evangelizing the world. 


The Crowning of Mary will take place after Mass on Friday, May 16.  All are welcome to attend.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Finish writing your speech for Wednesday, May 14.
  • Study your SAT words for Friday’s test, on May 16.
  • Complete the next five pages as instructed in your Rules of the Game grammar book, for Friday.
  • If you owe me rewrites from the Career Project, please submit them A.S.A.P.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and have a grand week ahead.
