8th Grade

This previous week, 8th grade students analyzed famous “how to” poems; then, they composed their own “how to poems” offering advice to the incoming seventh graders. I am extremely impressed by the quality and insightfulness of their writing and would love to share it with you if you are interested in reading it.

Congratulations to all of our 2020 graduates! Despite the unexpected and challenging nature of this last trimester, they all did an amazing job and invested an incredibly amount of hard work. I’m extremely proud of them all, and I can’t wait to see them at graduation to celebrate.
