We are in the final week of major testing. The bell schedule for each day will be shown below. Tuesday the 8th grade will be testing from 8:10 through to 11:40, so it will be a long and difficult day, please help by making sure they rest well Monday night. This is the last major test for 8th grade unless you have a student in Geometry (testing next Monday/Tuesday 5/2 and 5/3) or Algebra I (testing the week of 5/9).
This week we are over-viewing Chapter 13 "Manifest Destiny" and moving directly into Chapter 14. I emailed progress reports last week and will do so again once all of the Chapter 12 and 13 work is graded and entered. Please be sure that your student is completing work on a timely basis, we are getting down to the wire.
Students should NOT be returning his/her home copy of the textbook until AFTER our EOC. Our EOC is on Monday, 5/16 and Quizlets will be available for student review this week. All students that are eligible for exemption in US History were told Monday 4/25 with the exception of my 6th period students who will find out the next time I see them on Wednesday 4/27.
Washington DC Trip Students: Please return your complete, signed and NOTARIZED field trip form along with the $5 asap, we need it no later than Friday, 5/6. Thank you!!! (I am very excited about our trip!!!)
Quizlet should be used to prepare for Chapter tests. There is also an app that can be loaded on any Apple or Android device for practice "on the go".
