We Are Back from Thanksgiving and We are Still Learning!

Hope you all had a restful break, it was fantastic to see our students smiling and ready to learn this week. These next three weeks before Winter Break will be filled with activities and interesting curriculum.

In Mrs. Daley's class students are reading the Diary of Anne Frank - the play. This has given the students an opportunity to read the play out loud with a partner. We will also be examining the Holocaust and World War II.

In science, we started the week-long Family Life unit. This is a good opportunity to have an open conversation with your child!

In Mrs. Kaneshina's class, students will be designing their Desman! Students are using the Desmos Graphing Calculator while they are inputting quadratic and linear functions to produce an image of their own choosing. This project will be due on Tuesday, December 4th. Check in with your student to see where they are at with this project. This is an assignment that takes lots of time to perfect and shouldn't be done in one sitting.

Thursday Folders went home today. Please check online for any missing assignments and record current grades inside the Thursday Folder.

Last, but not least, final grades for the Second Trimester closes on Friday, December 19th. Which means there are only 15 days left before the second trimester is a wrap!
