Students have been working hard on preparing for the MCAS. A few of our focuses have been parts of speech, grammar, literary terms,and how to write an amazing open response question. The sixth graders took their reading comprehension assessment on the 20th and the 21st. Fifth graders will be testing on the 26th and 27th. The students are confident and prepared. We can't wait for June to see the preliminary results!
Class have been short because of the MCAS schedule but the sixth graders did get their letters mailed out to their country embassy and have begun their study of the continent of Africa. Fifth graders have started to gather information for their colony billboards. We can't wait to get back to a regular schedule.
