Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a wonderful and restful break. Back to school means back to work which can be difficult after being out of the routine for a couple of weeks. However, with NWEA testing starting this week and other subjects wrapping up we will be back ready to go first thing! We will have a math quiz on Thursday to review what we did just before break and reviewing this week up until the quiz. Students were doing great before break and it should be easy to jump back into. We start NWEA Friday and take one test next week and one the following week as well.

Next week is already the end of Marking Period 2. We will have a midterm to review common parts for subjects.

Upcoming Dates to Remember:

Friday, January 17th- 1/2 day

Tuesday, January 21st- 1/2 day

A friendly reminder that we will be having a science test tomorrow on Photosynthesis. Students have a study guide that we will go over in class and review for the test as well. The study guide is due tomorrow and is a great resource for the test.

We are continuing on with our Language Arts novel. We are over halfway through The Christmas Carol. Our plot summary chart is well under way and we are analyzing each of the ghosts that comes to visit Mr. Scrooge

In math we have started a new unit. Students will be busy working with ratios over the next few weeks.
