Some students were asking for more Winter Ball pictures, so here are a few more. Remember if you would like a copy of all the Winter Ball pictures, simply send a blank cd to me at school. :)

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the TCAP Writing Assessment?
The Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) Writing Assessment requires students to write a rough draft essay in response to an assigned prompt (topic) within a limited time period. Fifth-grade students are asked to write a narrative essay (a story), and eighth-grade students an expository essay (an explanation).
What are the requirements of the essay?The writing assessment is an essay completed within a designated time period. The student writes a rough draft essay because time constraints do not allow for revision. Students are expected to respond to the prompt in an organized, developed format using standard language, but the response is not expected to be a final polished essay.
How long is the Writing Assessment?
Fifth, eighth, and eleventh grade students have thirty-five minutes to respond to the prompt.
