VanderWall & Wedick's ELA Class
Week of 9/12-9/16
Last Week in Greyhound ELA
All students took the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) to get a quick look at their reading levels. SRI uses vocabulary, reading selections, and context clues to pinpoint students' reading levels. We will be retaking SRI in the winter and spring to see how our reading levels grow over the course of the year. Keep an eye out for a letter explaining this in your students's binder during Student Led Conferences.
Student Led Conferences are October 5th and 6th
Please click on the link below to sign up for your child's student-led conference in October. This is an opportunity for our students to share some of their incredible achievements with you, and we truly hope we can schedule a time that is convenient for your family. If not, please contact a team member to set up an alternate plan. Thank you for everything you do to help your child be successful.
Lady Giants volleyball team took on the Speedway Sparkplugs last week.
These ladies work hard and play hard under the direction of Coach Smythe.
Despite the loss, I loved seeing these ladies play their hearts out.
How to Survive the Real World
Last week, we had two big projects due. You will be able to see them on Skyward. The first is the Menu Project. Students planned a week's worth of meals, made a grocery list, and added up the total. The second was our check register that we worked on for a few weeks. Students started with their monthly income (after taxes) and used credits and debits to pay for bills, clothes, and other life expenses. They had to make some hard decisions to make it to the end of the month without going into the red.
