Pride Period: Academic Assistance Available for Students

 

 

Tutoring – Are you having difficulty writing that paragraph for Language Arts? Still have questions about last night’s math homework? Do you need a hand getting organized for the day?

Pride Period is your answer to those questions and more.

Every Tuesday through Friday, from 7:40 to 8:00 AM there are teachers waiting to help you with Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies or organization. In the mornings you can get a pass from teachers with Hall Duty to go back to the academic wings for help. You can also ask your teacher for a pass the day before you go to get help. For the afternoon, the process is the same … all you need is a pass to drop in and get assistance from a content teacher.

Pride Period, where teachers are here to help!

Congratulations Genoa!  This year's Nanowrimo participants have passed the million word mark!  As of Monday evening 9:10, Genoa writers have written 1,029,763 words!  CONGRATULATIONS and good luck to everybody meeting their word count and getting their stories completed.  You should all take a moment right now and pat yourselves on the back.

 

This week’s pick is Beautiful Creatures by one of the pep talkers from the Nanowrimo site this year, Kami Garcia. In a small South Carolina town, where it seems little has changed since the Civil War, sixteen-year-old Ethan is powerfully drawn to Lena, a new classmate with whom he shares a psychic connection and whose family hides a dark secret that may be revealed on her sixteenth birthday. In a town with no surprises, one secret changes everything. Like creepy Gothic romances?  Beautiful Creatures is the book for you.

 

The next 8th grade Battle of the Books meeting will be Wednesday, December 3rd during 8th grade lunch.  Team members are encouraged to pick up books if they need them.
