Mr. Hebert- Grade 6-8 Writing

Welcome to Writing!

STUDENT COUNCIL: MEETS EVERY TUESDAY @ LUNCH IN ROOM 307


Week of 12/18 - 12/22:

This week, sixth graders will be completing a couple of different activities related to poetry. Seventh and eighth graders should by now have turned in the graded drafts of their argument essays; because they have worked so hard on these, they will have an opportunity this week to do a bit of free writing and sharing.


Important Dates

Wednesday, December 20th: Grades K-2 Dance, 3-5 PM
Friday, December 22nd: Last day before break!
