Let’s talk Summer Reading!


For the next few days, please bring at least one of your favorite summer reading books. If you don’t have the book, you can print out a copy of the cover or have the cover open on your laptop. Because we’re going to be moving around the room, it’d be easier for you to have the book or a printed copy of the cover.

Also please bring in your Summer Reading Bingo card with the books you read listed in the boxes! Please definitely do so if you got a Bingo! Woo hoo!

Here’s a link to the Summer Reading information.

Welcome to American Studies!

I cannot wait to embark upon the year with you. Please be sure to read through the American Studies syllabus with your family. Additionally, please take a look at Mr. Taft’s and my information on Assessment. Never forget – Taft and I value each of you as individual learners, leaders, and citizens. Who you are as a learner is far more important than what letter grade you get.

If you have not done so already, please help the 8th grade team get to know you by completing the Student Interest Survey.

Don’t forget to join our GoogleClassroom, too! American Studies Google Classroom; code pfwx7v2.
