Welcome to Eighth Grade

March 19, 2018


Dear Parents,

First of all, tomorrow, Tuesday, March 20th is CLASS PICTURE DAY!  Let me repeat, CLASS PICTURE DAY TOMORROW!!   Eighth graders need to be in full uniform.


It was nice visiting with several of you during spring conferences.  It is always good to touch base.  Feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns.


Just as a reminder, when students have free dress days, they need to follow the dress code policy.  That means no ripped jeans and for girls, no fingernail polish.

Please return report card envelopes, signed, by Tuesday.    You may keep the report card and SLE reflections.


Hopefully, all families with younger siblings have enrolled for school at Immaculate Conception Regional School for next year.  Open enrollment begins today and we want to make sure that your child has a spot in the class.



Literature:  There are two novel studies going on at the same time.  One group is reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and the other group is reading, To Kill a Mockingbird.  This week each group will be reading chapters 2, 3, and 4.

Students need to pick out a biography by Friday.  They need to have it read by the end of April.

U.S. History:  Students explored the Constitution.  We will take a brief look at the Bill of Rights and Amendments.

Religion:  Eighth graders will work on the living Stations of the Cross.  They will lead us in prayer on Good Friday.  In class they are analyzing the Nicene Creed.  They will study “The Work of the Apostles” by learning and discussing the importance of ordained ministers in preaching the Good News.  They will learn about the Sacrament of Holy Orders and the offices of bishop, priest, and deacon.

Blessings for a good week,

Mrs. Reichlin
