MOBYMAX: All students need to be doing 15 minutes of MobyMax nightly. This is part of their homework score and many students are forgetting this requirement. MobyMax login and password information can be found in your child's B.E.E. Binder for their required 15 minutes nightly (or 60 minutes/week). If this is an issue at all, due to network resources, please let us know and we can work something out at school. Please send in a note if this is the case.
Science - Students are going to be reviewing concepts related to sound energy. Over this week and next, students will be learning about light energy.
