Week of January 11, 2016


9-weeks tests are coming up Thursday, January 14 and Friday, January 15. I will be using a portion of a released STAAR test as our 9-weeks test. Because I will be using a released STAAR test, there will not be an opportunity for a review, however, I will be reviewing with the students on testing strategies for test taking.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the 9-weeks test please feel free to email me any time.

Also, because of the 9-weeks tests being on Thursday, Cereal Box projects will be presented on Wednesday, January 13th. I have notified most students, but please make your student aware of this change.

Wednesday: Wrap up Unit 4A
