Blevins Broadcast

Room #135 News!

Welcome to Mrs. Blevins' Online News Broadcast!

Our classroom stresses the importance of working at one's full potential. The students are given opportunities to do their personal best during every activity. In order to determine your child's needs, continuous assessment takes place. All activities are designed so that every student in our classroom is working at a challenging and rewarding level. Throughout the school year, I promote working together to create an open teacher-parent-student communication relationship. I feel it is in your child's best interest if we work together and stay in contact with one another in order for him/her to be successful! Feel free to navigate the Blevins Broadcast at your convenience where you will find classroom news, slideshows, upcoming events, our week at a glance, a note from the teacher, and other pertinent information.

Our Week at a Glance!

Math

We took the Topic 3 Test on Wednesday. Students have been reviewing for the test all week long. Reminder: If your child wants to retake any assessment, it is their responsibility to come to me for their plan on when they want to retake it. Please continue checking your child's binder for grades. Next week, we will continue to focus on Topic 4, Solving Equations.
