8th Grade Knights Basketball

This Thursday I had a volleyball free evening and decided to go watch my 8th Grade students play some basketball. They are a great group of girls that my husband coached in 5th and 6th Grade. I am so glad I went to watch these girls play. LSA didn't stand a chance against them. They are now 10-0. What an accomplishment! These girls are great in the classroom and on the court. I hope I can make a few more games before the season is over. Go Knights!

Narrative Story Fun

The past few weeks my 8th Grade students have been working hard on narrative stories. They all did a great job of thinking about what makes a good story! We invited K-2 classes to come and listen as we presented them. I think everyone had a great time!

Friday, Sept. 28th was Homecoming for the ALAH School District. The seniors involved in fall extra curricular activities came and spoke to the grade school students about school spirit and being involved when they get to high school. This years senior class is very special to me. I was able to teach most of these students for 3 years from 7th to 9th Grade. They are a very talented group of students. To say I am a proud teacher is an understatement. I look forward to watching them in their year of "lasts." They are off to a wonderful start of a very memorable year. Thanks for coming to the grade school seniors! Mrs. V is proud of you.

The Gift of the Magi

The past week or so in Reading class we have been talking about gifts.We read the short story, The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry. The students listed some of their gifts in the categories below. It was great to see what they felt was most valuable to them, and hear about their most humorous gifts.
