The Crucible

We know that, despite being a classic, Arthur Miller's  The Crucible can be hard to understand,  Watch this video summary that highlights the main points. Also note that I put the title in italics.

Whoa- baby!!

BABY PICTURES NEEDED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8th graders - yearbook staff is in the process of creating the yearbook now. help them out- they need baby pictures of you.

Here is a link to upload  baby photos for the yearbook instead of emailing them. If you have an actual, hard-copy picture, please give to Ms. Cirrone in  Room 110.   Make sure your names are on the back of actual photos.   That's the link for the Josten's Tyngsborough Middle School account. Image result for jack jack  Image result for famous baby picturesImage result for famous baby pictures

Extra info

We've talked about World War 1 and how it symbolizes a loss of innocence.  That, in turn, helps to create the theme in "The Man in the Black Suit."  Here are some videos with more info on World War 1- The Great War- for the history fans.

1st full week down

So we made it through our 1st five day week ( with a half day in there).  We read one of the best stories: "The Man in the Black Suit."   We will do some work with it next week as well.  Last night's open house was fun- always good to meet some parents who raised some great young people.  I spoke about the DC trip- must have been good, as about  7 or 8 people signed up right after it...

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

New year, new Site...

I am fed up with Wordpress.  They change things, and never for the better.  I'll try this google site.  Google already owns everything, so I don't think they'll change stuff to extract a few more dollars.  Here's to a great school year in 2018-2019.  😁
