With summer quickly approaching, it is very important to stay focused and continue to give full effort in all things. Please remember to bring a charged Chromebook to school every day.
Students of the Month
Math (Blank, Steinike, Timm)
Our focus is on geometry, specifically surface area and volume of shapes.
Communication Arts (Juzwik, Rosado, Vanden Berg)
Ask your student to see their feature articles, and for them to show you their classes work on the websites. The work they did was absolutely fantastic.
Science (Hermsen and Skipper)
Students have started a new unit of study on water contamination. During the unit, students will try and solve a water contamination problem of a fake town called Fruitvale. Topics that come up in the simulation are: water cycle, permeability, plumes, point/nonpoint sources and much more.

Students are concluding the studies of Africa with a current event presentation. The presentation is due next week.
