Week of March 21st-24th, 2016
Dear PACE Parents,
I hope you all had a great Spring Break. It’s so nice to have some time off to get rejuvenated! We’re on the downhill stretch, but we have so much left to do in PACE in the next few months!
This week we concentrated on writing, editing and revising rough drafts. The students have worked so hard on their outlines, bibliography cards, and notecards. It’s great seeing them organizing their notes and thoughts to write their research report. The students that have finished the rough drafts have started typing final drafts of their report.
Our PACE open house, Evening with Experts, is Tuesday, May 17th from 6:00-7:30 pm. It will once again be held in the Chisholm Trail High School cafeteria. The students love sharing their research projects on this special night.
Thank you for all you do!
