Hello 8th Grade Families, 

During today's class, all of the girls went down to the gym to hear speakers from Mary Help of Christians School. In the classroom, I worked one on one with as many of the boys as possible to review their VFW 1st drafts. If I wasn't working with students, they were completing a worksheet on commas and then reading independently. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier

Hello 8th Grade Families,

After the 8th graders took their Unit 2 Spelling and Vocabulary tests, they were given the opportunity to work on their VFW 5 paragraph essays. They were also given our second period to work on this assignment. During our second period, I pulled a few students to review their Weebly and the rubric. It is EXTREMELY important that students are referring to the rubric while they complete their Weebly. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier

Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today we read more from The Outsiders. While reading we came across Robert Frost's poem, Nothing Gold Can Stay. The 8th graders and I analyzed the poem and broke down its meaning. We came to the conclusion that the poem was a metaphor for life and it's main message: Nothing Gold Can Stay really meant that nothing good can last forever. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
