Happy New Year!

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the holidays and our time off from school. We are all looking forward to a wonderful 2016!

Social Studies Quiz on Wednesday

We will be having a short quiz on Wednesday (1/13). The quiz will cover the material that we have covered thus far in this unit. Students will have three (pink) note sheets from which to study: (1) After Independence; (2) The Constitutional Convention / Compromises; and (3) Ratification of the Constitution.

Students also have vocabulary flashcards to help them study. They also should be completing their Creative Notes assignment which is due Wednesday and should help them study.

(From Mrs. Olvany) -

Period 2: Chapter 7 quiz Wednesday

Students in this class are working on geometric figures. The beginning of this chapter has dealt with lines and angles and parallel lines cut by a transversal. Students should know the following relationships: vertical angles, supplementary and complementary angles, alternate interior and alternate exterior angles, and corresponding angles. I have a link on my website to a website called quizlet to study these terms and relationships.

Period 3, 4, 7, 9: Chapter 1 quiz Friday

Students in this class are working on ratios and unit rate. If you are out and about and see an opportunity to point out to your child unit rate (grocery store, etc), please do. I told them this is about real life – how to keep more of your money!!!!! : ) Have fun with it!

All classes: Please look HERE for thoughts on how to help your child succeed in Mrs. Olvany's math class.

Is there any homework tonight?

All 7th grade students are expected to have and use their agendas throughout the day. Agendas should be the first source for info about assignments, tests, etc. If your child forgets to bring his/her agenda home, (or if what your child recorded is unclear or illegible), you can also try our "homework hotline". You can also check up on missing assignments and/or grades through our Infinite Campus Student/Parent Portal.

If students have work that has been saved on the school's network, they should be able to access the school network by clicking HERE; NOTE: The password for all school webpages is Canandaigua .

Teacher Webpages

Some teachers have their own classroom websites. You may be able to find more information, links, assignments, etc. by visiting their classroom webpages.

NOTE - the password to visit all school websites is: Canandaigua

Mrs. Olvany is particularly good about keeping her website up-to-date with assignments. Click HERE to visit her webpage.
