Weekly News for 10/27 - 31/2014:
1st Period: We did not receive any donations for our "Basket Benefit" so we don't have a basket that represents us this year. Students have the opportunity to participate in the "Americanism Essay Contest" sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA), there is a reference pdf file shown below. We are also holding our annual Veterans Day poster contest. The theme for both of these activities is "What Freedom Means to My Family". These activities are optional however all students are encouraged to participate - both the essay and the poster are due first thing Wednesday morning on November 5th. A winner will be chose for each grade level and prizes will be awarded during our Veterans Day assembly on Tuesday, November 11th.
We are testing on Chapter 4 on Tuesday and beginning Chapter 5 on Wednesday. We are at the point in history that the colonists decide that "taxation without representation" isn't working well for them!
We are working in Access this week, creating tables and running queries. All grading done through Access #3 and I'm working my way through the rest.
We continue to work on our daily homework assignments and in the Aleks program. Please reinforce the importance of respecting the space and work time of others; repeated distractions make it hard for work to be done. If your student is not receiving at least a 4/5 or 5/5 each day for being "Prepared and Working" that means that time is not being spent wisely and he/she is disrupting the work environment. It is also imperative that the students TRY their homework independently - we are starting to have days where this hasn't happened and they are just waiting to start it, or even to look at it for the first time in our class.
