Ms. Odom's Classes McKinney High School 2015-16

Week 4/11-15/16

Can you believe there are only 8 weeks left in this school year? While we're already thinking of summer activities, summer jobs, and perhaps even upcoming vacations, and of course, the impending Texas summer, let's not lose our focus on the goal of finishing strong this year! I've emailed parents of students in danger of failing either the 9 weeks or the semester and am following up with phone calls. I'm limited in the time I'm able to call, so please check your email and contact me as soon as possible if your student is in danger.

Check out the links below to see what's happening in my classes this week!

Fashion Marketing

Our test on design elements and principles is next Tuesday. We've examined natural and synthetic fibers and are completing a mini-project on new, innovative fibers. We will complete this unit and begin looking at design segments and researching our favorite designers.

I'm available for tutorials before school any morning but Tuesday or after school on any day except Wednesday. Students must obtain a pass to attend any tutorial and those are available in my classroom.

Money Matters

We learned how to Drive Free - Retire Rich and students created a plan to buy their first dream car! We've learned about insurance and are practicing choosing and balancing a checking account and using online banking this next week. We have a test on Tuesday cover our iCEV lessons and Virtual Business Personal Finance Finding an Apartment, Buying a Car, and Insurance.


We've finally finished our Marketing Plan and Advertising/Marketing activities! We're starting on our Operations section this week and learn about accounting forms and records, distribution channels and we'll create a distribution plan for our business. We're nearing the finalization of the business plan in a few weeks.
