This week students will begin taking their ELA Milestones Tests. 8th grade students will test on Monday and Tuesday, 7th grade will be testing Wednesday and Thursday. We strongly encourage that students eat a healthy breakfast and come to school well rested, so they can better focus on each test section.
During the days students are not testing, our IEL class will be working on a Figurative Language Project, which they will complete in class. They will identify different types of figurative language in a variety of texts. This week we will focus on personification, onomatopoeia, simile and metaphor. This project will be due next Friday, April 26th.
