     WELCOME to Lonoke Middle School!  


    This year the 7th grade literacy classes will be embarking upon exciting adventures of learning!  Our learning adventures will be based on the Arkansas Core State Standards of English Language Arts for reading, writing, speaking & listening, langauge (grammar).  

    We will be reading a variety of texts including a myriad of nonficiton, informational, expository reading.  In turn, they will be learning to write expository, explanatory essays and reports. 


    The best ways to support your student on our journey to improve performance and learning in this class is to expect your childe to

    • Be at school everyday
    • READ at home for at least 15-20 minutes each day
    • Share something he/she has learned during the week

    These practices will stengthen reading comprenhension, speaking, vocabuary, and even writing skills!  Feel free to contact me at anytime.  I value your suggestions, questions, and concerns (praise is also welcomed).  YOUR support will help us make this the BEST school year yet.  THANK YOU!
