While on the subject of my wonderful writers, students have a great opportunity at Peterson Middle School to participate in UIL competition. I will be coaching the events of Ready Writing and Spelling in UIL competition this year and invite any of my eager writers and spellers to participate. This is a new endeavor for me as a teacher, so my students and I will learn the ins and outs of UIL together.
Okay, okay... Now for the part that you're here for- the review!

Spelling Lesson 8 Review...
If you (your student) has earned a grade below 70 on a quiz, it is EXTREMELY important that they make corrections as soon as possible to bring that grade up to 70. Progress reports will be posted this weekend, they will be sent home next Thursday, and the grading period will be over on the following Friday! This is the shortest grading period of the year, so make sure your student is on the ball now!
Study study study!
