Mr. Hebert- Grade 6-8 Writing

Welcome to Writing!


Week of 12/11 - 12/15

This week, both sixth and seventh graders will be finishing up the major pieces of writing that they have been working on for most of the second quarter. For sixth graders, that is the fiction story; for seventh and eighth graders, it is the argument essay. These pieces will be graded using the rubrics that have been posted on each class's Google Classroom page. As always, any student who is unhappy with his or her grade is welcome to revise and resubmit up until the end of the quarter.

Important Dates

Friday, December 15th: Grades 6-8 Dance, 7-10 PM
Wednesday, December 20th: Grades K-2 Dance, 3-5 PM
Friday, December 22nd: Last day before break!
