Introduction and Overview of Our Week

Monday 4/4/16

Dear Wonderful Families,

Welcome to week 30 of the 2015/2016 school year. (We have a total of 38 weeks.) This is OLE week for 6th grade in the Western Placer Unified School District. I will use after school and evening this week to prep for next week. Unfortunately, teachers do not have much extra time outside of OLE during school hours, so students needing to ask questions or turn things in need to do so immediately before or immediately after school. But, we have such a great time learning with our students and enjoying a beautiful environment.

This week in Math we will review on Monday and the only homework for the week is to finish the Next Generation Practice “Test” online via pearsonrealize.com. It is important that student remember to complete this by Friday.

This week in Social Studies we will do a webquest in class on Monday. If students do not finish in class, it is homework due no later than Friday.
