4th Quarter Progress Reports come out next Friday, April 29, 2016. Please check grades on PowerSchool now to ensure that there are no surprises next week.
On Monday, we spent one final day working on our Water Unit letters and getting our folders completely finished. Please check with your son/daughter; if they have their folder in their backpack this weekend, it means they need to finish their folders completely. The final collection of these folders is on Monday.
On Tuesday, I passed out the Project Guidelines for the 4th Quarter Independent Book Project as well as the rubrics that go with it. Please check my homework website, specifically the KBAR tab, for digital versions of both. They're at the bottom, below the calendar for the year.
Special shout out to Ms. Lincoln and her third-period class for inviting me to watch their debates this week. On Friday, I got to see arguments for and against Supreme Court Justices being chosen by the President and allowing students off campus for lunch. It's so great that students of both Ms. Lincoln and myself are getting essential debate/argument skills, especially if they have both of us. AWESOME JOB, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!!
This week in AVID was a pretty standard week. We continued working on our AVID websites and added a reflection of our college visits. We also had an amazing tutorial and had a lot of fun on Fun Friday!
