Welcome back 8th grade students and familes

Dear 8th grade students and families,

Welcome back to your final year at Trinidad School.    It’s sure to be an unforgettable experience with all the fun activities and adventures like:   the backpacking trip, ski trip, halloween carnival, after school sports, marine studies, and of course . . .  graduation!    

This year in science we study matter, energy, and waves.

And in social studies, with Ms. Cunningham,  you will be learning about America's first people through the U.S. Constitution.

This year most of you will be in Course 3 math which introduces more advanced algebra and geometry skills in order to get ready for Integrated 1 math in high school.   

8th grade language arts focuses on analyzing literature and poetry, and writing clear argumentative essays, so get ready to B.S. . . .be specific, that is.

Spanish, tech skills, music, art, PE, and Monday Mash-up are all on the menu too, so there’s something for everybody.  

You can access a list of recommended school supplies and the tentative class schedule through my class website.

School starts on Monday, August 28 at 8:50.   Don’t forget that every Monday school ends at 2:10, including the first day of school.   

See you soon!

Mr. Vack
