Quiz for Tomorrow and Past Due Homework

Third Grade: They will take their science quiz tomorrow and their social studies on Monday. Although science was planned for today , due to the new schedule,some students go went out during the period and its unfair for all students to not take the quiz at the same time.


Fourth Grade: Fourth grade is having a social studies quiz on the information covered right before the break. The notes are below, but they should be in your notebooks as well. As you will notice the document below is straight from a students notebook.

Click here for notes


This week on Monday, I went over with every class , who was missing Achieve 3000 article activities that were assigned over the Easter vacation. Those students were told that they could finish the work this week, but the only way I would check it is if they (the student) write a note telling me that they have finished the work. Since it is being done late it is up to them to tell me that they are done now, I will not check if i do note get a note and the zero will remain.

GYM SCHEDULE
