*There will be a test next when the kids return on Tuesday (no school on Monday). The kids will have done a project on rocks and minerals and reviewed a lot in class, so they shouldn't have to study very much over the weekend. I would suggest doing a review of the material before they come to school on Tuesday so they are ready for the test.
