This week in Math 7, we are going to learn about our last application of percents: simple interest, and use the simple interest formula to find interest in different scenarios.

On Thursday, we will have a surprise Easter related extra credit opportunity!

This week in Pre-Algebra, we are going to review our last topic in this chapter: using the Fundamental Counting Principle in order to determine the number of outcomes in complex experiments. Then we will review for the test and take the test on all of Chapter 6 which include, ratios and rates, proportions, similar figures, scale, probability, and the fundamental counting principle. On Thursday, we will have a surprise Easter related extra credit opportunity!

This week in Algebra, we will take a test on all of Chapter 7, which includes rates and ratios, proportions, clearing, percents, percent problems, mixture problems, work problems, negative exponents, and scientific notation.

COVID-19 Vaccination Questionnaire

As you can imagine, this year, school leaders, staff, and parents are navigating complications not forecasted at this time in 2020. Though we do not have a mask mandate, it is important to remember that the pandemic is not over. We continue to be as vigilant as possible while allowing parental agency on masking.

For the purpose of collecting data collection, I have constructed a brief, voluntary questionnaire for families about the vaccination status of their St. Joe's students. If you would be willing to share that information, please consider completing it by Friday, October 15th.

Social Media - Please follow us!

We will continue to post photos, videos, updates on our social media pages. We host a St. Joseph Regional Jr. High School Parents' Facebook Group that we encourage you to follow, link here.

In the next year, please watch for our new Instagram account and live versions of our schoolday exclusively on these private pages.
