Featured above is our visiting artist, Laura Lee Gulledge, who will be working with ALL 7th grade students this week on a mural and mini-comic books! She is a talented artist and graphic novelist who has worked with several schools, and Jackson is excited to host her this week!
Here are Laura’s books!
We will also be continuing Facing the Lion, Chapters 3-5, and complete notes and journals for those chapters in class. In Social Studies, students will be working on their pharaoh burial chambers and turning them in on Friday—pictures will be posted next week!
It was amazing to see so many of you at Back to School Night! After 22 years of teaching, it was one of the best attended evenings, and it really inspired me! I am looking forward to a productive and creative year with your children!
