Students will have a guest teacher on Wednesday, October 22nd. I expect them to exhibit our core value of hospitality and hard work while I am out.
HISTORY 1st Period: Please review the "Basket Benefit" letter that your student brought home - all donations need to be received no later than 10/23/2014. We are working in Chapter 4 this week, specifically lessons 3 and 4. Students are also working on their Chapter 3 Test Personal Analysis and Corrections (if applicable). As a reminder, a completed study guide is the "ticket" to being able to earn correction points. Our next Chapter test will be Tuesday, October 28th.
COMPUTERS We are working in Access this week, creating tables and running queries. All grading done for Access #1 & #2 and I'm working my way through the rest.
MATH 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.
