Students will be engaged in English Language Arts. We will focus on the Common Core Standards which will prepare the students for the PSSA/Common Core Tests. We will be recalling information, building skills/concept areas, using strategic thinking and using extended thinking.
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I will be teaching your child ELA (reading, grammar, spelling). I will try to follow the homework helpline assignments as best I can. As always, there may be some unforseeable events. Please keep in mind we need to have an open line of communication for you the student/parent to have a great year.
Looking forward to a great school year!!
