Next Step Plans for Eighth Grade
8th Grade Parents
Be expecting a Next Step Plan from your students in late April or early May. These sheets need to be filled out and returned to the counseling office as soon as possible. The Next Step Plan is designed to help us and the high school counselors project a plan to help your students graduate on time.
This year the idea of having our students professionally publish a book was brought to the attention of the Language Arts Department. Many believed it was a fantastic idea and that same idea then blossomed into a project that was carried out in our Language Arts classes.
The task given to our students was to engage in the “writing process” in order to construct a narrative about their culture. Students from each grade level took on this task and did a fantastic job. Their narratives were then sent off to be published and with the financial assistance of the JOM committee, the narratives returned to us hard bound and professionally published. They looked great and the students were very proud to show them off at the book parties that followed! The student’s family now has a keepsake to enjoy for many years to come.
