Reading: Students practiced their Literature Circles plays today.

Writing: Today was the last school work day for students to work on their I-Search projects (click here for more details). Students have until Saturday to…

  • spell check their presentations using or some other resource, or
  • work on their presentation saved on Google Docs ( This presentation can be edited from school and home.

I will save all presentations on Sunday, so no work done on that day will be included in the presentations shown at school.

Students will present their research on Monday morning, April 28, from 10:30-11:30 am in the small gym during our I-Search Conference. Family members are welcome! View your student’s presentation time here.

Students have been asked to wear nice, business casual type clothing (no jeans, t-shirts or shorts, please). Students may bring clothes to change into after their presentation. Finally, it might be a good idea to have your student practice talking through their presentation before Monday.
