Mr. Hebert- Grade 6-8 Writing

Welcome to Writing!

STUDENT COUNCIL: MEETS EVERY TUESDAY @ LUNCH IN ROOM 307


Week of 4/17 - 4/20:

This week, students in 6th grade continue to work on drafting their "autobiography" projects. Students in 7th grade are beginning to write their own fantasy and/or science fiction stories. 8th graders will be wrapping up their "endings" to Adi Rule's Strange Sweet Song. All middle school students have now taken the NH State Assessment in writing and from what I have seen and heard, they did a fantastic job applying the skills they have been practicing in class to this unfamiliar and challenging writing task. Well done to all!

April 21 - 29: Spring Vacation!!!!!
