Welcome to Mr. Hartung’s update - January 21, 2018 - (Please note that my phone extension has changed from 207 to 107)
No more Mondays off as we head into the meat of the 1st grading period in semester two:
This week my students will focus on:
8th grade - This week we will talk about the Judicial Branch and then spend a bit of time on review preparing for a three branches quiz on Friday. Next week will be the beginning of the end of our Government unit as we look at the Bill of Rights.
7th grade - We are in the midst of Medieval Japan, and will spend time this week talking about Shoguns and Samurai. We continue to read The Samurai’s Tale together in class.
Yearbook - Students have been working on design ideas for the 8th grade portrait pages. On Tuesday we will have a vote to see what design elements get used as we move forward towards our next deadline.
As always if you have questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact me.
