Grade 8 Update:  September, 2013

Welcome back, eighth graders.  This is your year to shine as models, mentors, and leaders of MCCPS.  We are confident that you will all make us proud.

Please bring a reading book to school on Monday and throughout the year, as advisory time is a silent reading period each day.  Also bring the two assigned novels that you read over the summer.  The first thesis paper will be based on these books.

All classes, including Integrated Arts, will begin during the first week of school.  Check the supply list to ensure that you are prepared.

On Tuesday of the first week of school, there will be a test on summer reading.  You may select one of the novels read on which to be evaluated.  Particularly if you did your summer reading early in the summer, review the novels carefully to refresh your memory.  More information about the test will be provided on the first day of school.

Parent/Teacher Night is scheduled on Thursday, September 19th at 6:30.  More information about the year will be shared with your parents at that time.

Finally, the curriculum in the eighth grade is challenging.  However, nothing assigned will be beyond your reach.  If you try your best, you will succeed. .  We promise.
