It has already been an exciting first couple weeks of school. Some things to remember for September:

Book Orders are due on Friday, September 14th (to order online use this link: for every $25 you spend online, you get to choose a free book up to $5!!! using code READS)

AR Points will be due at the end of the quarter (October 12th) so keep reading!

No school on Monday, September 10th

Spirit day on Friday, September 28th (we hope to have the 8th grade shirts by this time!)

In ELA, we will continue to work on literature, grammar, writing, and vocabulary. 7th and 8th grade will be assigned a book report for the first quarter. Information will be coming home the week of September 11th so be on the look out for that!

As always, thank you for all you do for our students, our classroom, and our school!

Welcome Back Middle School Students!!! 

It was great to see so many of you at open house on Sunday. I look forward to seeing all of you on the first day of school this Thursday, August 16th. We will have a busy first few days passing out supplies, going over syllabus, reviewing/introducing classroom rules and procedures, etc. Come prepared and ready! 

During ELA this year, we will be reading from the literature books as well as a handful of novels. Students will be learning new grammar and writing skills through the use of interactive notebooks. Vocabulary will focus on units of Greek and Latin roots.

Book orders will be sent home monthly. All orders help to earn free books, games, supplies, etc. for the classroom. Book orders may be completed online through my teacher page (use code MGDJ6) or with a paper copy with check or cash.


I am excited for another great school year! I hope you all are too!!
