Good morning and welcome back! I hope you had a nice Memorial Day and a very happy Eid <3

We are almost at the end of the road! Just a couple more week of school left. Please check student connect for your grades and if you have missing assignments, they can still be turned in for full credit.

For those who want to RETAKE ANY QUIZZES, just email me and I will reset them for you! I have reset chapter 9-12 quiz for EVERYONE! If you are not satisfied with your grade, retake it 😀

This week we are reading chapters 13-14 from Watsons Go to Birmingham. The vocab is the only assignment and the quiz will be posted Thursday at 7pm! We have a video call on Thursday at either 5 or 6pm! 🙂 Remember, it is easier to get full points on the quiz if you just attend the video call!

IMPORTANT- picking up personal items from school.

We hope this post finds all of you in good health! We wanted to share with you our plans on distributing your child’s personal items from their lockers. Our staff will collect, label, and bag your child’s personal belongings left in their school locker. We have set schedules in place for distribution. Distribution of student personal items will be off of Hubbard St. at door number # 7. This will be one way traffic only on Hubbard facing Greenfield just like we did for chromebooks. Please see the link to the document for our schedule. Schedule :
