Welcome to Mr. Hartung’s update - February 12, 2018 - (Please note that my phone extension has changed from 207 to 107)
This week my students will focus on:
8th grade - This week we expand beyond the Bill of Rights to discuss the equal protection clause and the evolution of equal rights in the classroom.
7th grade - Finishing Japan this week and looking at the geography of Europe to set up us for the next unit beginning when we get back from break. We continue to read The Samurai’s Tale together in class.
Yearbook - We will celebrate the passing of our February 12th deadline and create a list of tasks that still need to be completed by the next deadline, March 26th.
As always if you have questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact me. We are in the middle of the grading period, I will be talking to students about missing work and offering reminders…I usually offer fewer reminders during second semester to my 8th graders in an attempt to get them ready for the increased level of responsibility coming in High School. As parents, however, if you have questions or issues with grades please feel free to call me at any time.
