8th Graders ROCK!

Hi all. Soon to be listed below are both the standards map for 8th grade as well as information about on-going homework.  This year students will be taking the new SBAC test that will assess them on the CCSS or national standards.  More information to come as soon as we learn all the ins and outs of this new test.    These new standards are more rigorous and require a higher level of critical reading.  It's important that each student is reading for 30 minutes at home a night and finishing books.  Students also will be writing for 10 minutes every night as well.  Looking forward to this year and every student's success!

Also listed is a slideshow that explains our AVID program at Whiteaker as well as applications for both 6th graders and 7/8th graders.  However, our updated slideshow and applications will be updated soon.  If you have any questions, please email
