Happy May Day!

Dear Eighth Grade Parents and Students,

Last Week, my Eighth Graders watched the movie, The Odyssey, which brought the book to life for them.  This week, they will continue to read Lord of the Flies by William Golding.  In addition to this, they will continue to work on correcting their speeches for Speech Night.   Their next writing assignment, “Write a Speech,” is due on Monday, May 9.

This week in history, my Eighth Graders will prepare for their History Test of Chapter 8, which is scheduled for Friday, May 6.  In addition to this, they will continue reading Chapter 9 in the history book, which focuses on the Westward Expansion.  They will also watch a history series about The American Revolution on the History Channel.


My Eighth Graders will be going to The Star Theatre on Tuesday, May 10, to see The Little Mermaid, starring Jenna Bell as Ariel.  We will need drivers.  If you are available to drive, please contact me.  Thank you!

This week, Family Life will address “Marriage and Family” and “God’s Gift of Community.”

The following is the homework for this coming week:

  • Study for the History Test on Friday, May 6.
  • Write your “Speech” for Monday, May 9.
  • Write the history questions and answers from Chapter 9, into your history notebooks.

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