Just a quick reminder that tomorrow, Nov. 15th, is a late start. The bus schedule will be pushed back 1 hour. Dismissal time is not affected.
Also, we only have school next week on Monday and Tuesday. The rest of the week will be our Thanksgiving Break.
Students that are in my math class will have a word problem test on Thursday. We are working on finding the number information needed to solve the problem and using our math word wall to find the correct opperation. This has been something we have worked on since the start of the school year and this will be the second time for a formal assessment of student growth.
Thank you to everyone that made it to Dearborn High last week for Parent/Teacher Confrences. Mrs. Rockey and I enjoy the time we have to talk about the progress of our students with thier families. If you didn’t make it in, look for report cards in the next week or so. As always, if you have any quesions or concerns feel free to call or e-mail either one of us.
Just a reminder that this coming Tuesday is a day off for students. This allows our school building to be used for voting. The staff in the ASD program will be spending the day learing new skills in a professional development.
We had a surprise guest today. Samantha brought us pumkins to decorate.
