Today, March 14, 2018, Monelison participated in the National school "Walk-out" sponsered by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and in memory of students and faculty who lost their lives in Parkland Florida. Each willing student wrote notes of encouragement onto a piece of paper and these were all linked together to make a memory/encouragement chain that is now on display in the cafeteria. It is times like these that we need to stand together and support on another and that is just what we did today.

Parents, if you have not already done so, please come into the guidance office and sign up for the Powerschool Parental Portal. Here you can check your students grades on a daily basis and also see what they have not completed.


The English SOL Simulation test will be announced later.


Every day students have a warm-up to do. The warm-ups involve correcting grammar, spelling and punctuation. 

We have now completed units on subject/predicate, nouns, verbs, prepositional phrases, adjectives, adverbs and pronouns, but students are still responsible for remembering this information and for keeping all of their notes as well as returned, graded papers.

We are currently working on our 3rd nine weeks writing prompt.


Every day in reading, we have independent silent reading for 10-15 minutes. Students will need to have a book in class everyday for this.

There are only 3 library weeks left. Students need to make sure that they are finding those missing books and get them returned to the library ASAP.

Students are responsible for their silent reading a number of different ways. They record information about their book each day as they read and they have different options available to them to report about what they have read such as writing summaries and book reports.

We continue to learn about plot structure including; exposition, initiating event, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution, and conflict.

We just completed a unit on text structure and began a unit on style, mood and tone.

Our reading SOL Simulation test is scheduled for March 29 and 30th. 


I am expecting great things from our students this year as always. We will have a wonderful and productive year.
