Announcements

4th quarter Begins!!


Tuesday April 21st fundraiser at the Ironworks Grill at the Grand Lodge in Forest Grove.


If you have checked out or "borrowed" a Life Science text book, please return it this week.


In Science: Last week we finished the 4 day SBAC interim assessment!


We are moving on to explore Physics! We will start with a section on motion and speed.


There will be a couple instructional videos for homework this week. Students should be watching and taking notes. Other then that, there should not be much homework if the kids use their class time wisely. To get a more precise daily outlook, check out the daily planner on my website by clicking the following link: Kottkey website
