Hello 110 Families,

 

We had another wonderful week.  The students finished a very wonderful piece of opinion writing.  They wrote about which season they thought was the best and why.  Next week we will be writing about our favorite holidays. It will be so great to share all our different traditions through our writing.

 

We are getting a new student next week.  His name is Yahye. One of the special things about our new friend is that he doesn’t speak English yet.  I have asked the class to be extra kind, help him on his journey to learn English and be role models as he joins our community and learns how we do things in 110 and at Marcy.

 

Have a great weekend,

Rachel Herder
