Needing Stamps

All students are asked to bring in two first-class stamps for our letter writing unit. If students bring in an additional two stamps, they will receive a homework pass.

Snail Mail Relay

Students are participating in what is known as the Great Snail Mail Relay. Eighth grade students from all across the country practice their writing skills by writing to other eighth graders in all fifty states. Students received a letter from a student in Mitchell, Indiana. All students will write back to this student and then write to another eighth grade class from another state. As we receive letters back, we will keep you posted!
