Mr. Rossi's 8th Grade

We are working hard to live out our Live, Love, Learn theme this year. Mr. Rossi is helping bring the Gospel to the classroom in exciting ways. In social studies, we will learn about the inventions of the late 1800s. We will also study about the immigrants coming to the United States and their contributions to our country. We may get as far as Teddy Roosevelt's Presidency and Spanish Civil War.
We are doing well with our new reading series which is helping to prepare us for our last Terra Nova tests at La Salle Academy.
The stories are interesting even though the questions are a lot more difficult. We are doing more writing than in past years - incorporating social studies and language arts.
