February, 2019

We have just finished the 2nd marking period! Time flies when you’re having fun! The students in my classes have accomplished so much at the start of 2019! I was thrilled to be a part of our first annual Day of Service in January, and I was so proud to watch my students gain confidence as readers in book club groups and as writers of literary essay! During the month of February, we will move on to study “Argument and Advocacy.” Students will shift their wonderful essay-writing skills to a research topic. We will start by researching a common topic, then students will become advocates for other issues in our world today. I am so excited to get started with this new adventure.

Here are some tips for ongoing success in my classes:

  1. Continue to use my teacher website for homework and event updates. I post my homework each day, so if you forgot to copy your homework in your agenda, it is always accessible here.

  2. Now that we are halfway through the school year, it is a great time to replenish school supplies, especially pencils :)

  3. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever have questions or concerns.

  4. Continue to encourage reading at home! Students should be reading each night.

Have a wonderful month! Stay warm,

Mrs. Horvath
