Eighth graders work toward the goal of preparation for high school. Assignments and assessments, therefore, incorporate aspects of the complexity typical of secondary-level work.


     Students will use "The Writing Process" and elements of the "6+1 Writing Traits" to further develop and refine their writing skills. They will self-select and read a variety of fiction and non-fiction as they journey toward becoming life-long readers. In addition, students review for the Catholic High School Entrance Exam (CHSEE) in September and October.

     Curriculum is aligned to both the NYS Common Core Standards and the Diocese of Rockville Centre standards.
