Miss O'Connor: Language Arts

What's Happening in 236?

new year, new ideas
As the second half of the school year begins, we are moving on to analytical writing. In the next few months we'll explore how writers develop and support claims, and of course, write essays to support our own claims.  

Want to start the second half of the year off right? Organize your ELA notebook. You can find all that you need on the Get Organized! page. The link is on the sidebar.

Parents, this can be a time of year when students struggle. You can help your child by continuing to check homework and encouraging the use of PowerSchool. Both you and your child can use PowerSchool to see what work has been turned in, and what work is still outstanding.  

Additional assistance in Language Arts is offered Thursdays from 2:35-3:20.
