 Welcome to 7th and 8th-Grade Language Arts!

 

 

Dear Parents and Students:

 

We have worked so hard this year to prepare for state testing and most of the students grieved with me on Friday when we thought that we would not be able to do state testing and earn number one in the parish.

 

Well, from what we’ve been told, we will get to take LEAP when we get back! The students will be able to earn rewards for next year by scoring high on the tests again. To prepare for this, we are going to keep doing what we’ve been doing. Keep up the good work! We’ve got this! We will be number one again!
