Dear Eighth Grade Parents,
Short week and so a short note! It has been a busy week filled with Shakespeare rehearsals, cultural studies research work, and lots of Latin and math. We are lucky once again this year to have Brooke Behmke join us for Shakespeare. Brooke is an actor and father of twin daughters Beyan and Senait in the third grade. He has extensive Shakespeare experience, as well as training in stage combat and choreography. This is his fifth year with us, and we are so grateful.
Over the long weekend we hope students are taking this opportunity to memorize their lines for Shakespeare and do a lot of reading related to their research reports. The month of January goes quickly, and this is a great time to get ahead on project work.
We hope to see many of you on Monday in the Garage to help with sandwich making for area shelters!
Have a restful weekend.
Emily, Ethan, Ashley, and Wendy
