To all 7th graders: The vocabulary test, taken last Friday, Sept 25th, must be finished and/or made up by Friday, Oct. 2nd.  If you do not arrange to make up the test, it will be recorded as missing, which will factor as a zero on the portal. Moreover, if you do not make arrangements with me to finish it if it is incomplete, the blank answers will be marked down.

Remember: it is up to you to arrange a time to complete this test. I am available most days after school, and if you have an academic lab, let me know, and I will forward the test to your ac. lab. teacher.

“Checkouts” For 8th Grade

8th grade: Here is the passage by Longfellow that seems to reflect this story. Read it, think about the story, and decide why I’ve chosen this passage. Comment below to let me know you’re reading!

“Ships that pass in the night and speak each other in passing; Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another; Only a look and a voice; then darkness again and a silence.
–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
