Fourth Quarter Tutoring - Change

My Comets Math Tutoring through BASA has been officially canceled. We have only had one student sign up. I will still be willing to stay on my own time on the originally scheduled dates listed below. I will stay and work with students who show up until they tell me they have their math completed. I will then have them call home to get a ride or send them on to the next activity that they have scheduled. I will be willing to stay as late as the original 4:45 as long as I have students who need help. I will end the session when my last student leaves. All students who need help should be in my room at the 3 o'clock start time. If no students are in my room by 3:10, the tutoring session will end.

Regular Math

Students are using pages and keynote to finalize their written and visual presentations. They are working on finishing their models. Everything should be done by Friday. Presentations are on Wednesday, April 24th. This project will be on midterm.

Students should be able to tell you if it is feasible to build the ramp or not, where the ramp would go if it is, and what materials they are using to build their models with.

Mrs. Hauger and I are co-teaching regular math. We are starting a major project on Friday, April 12th with presentations on Wednesday, April 24th. The top project in each class will be presented to the principal on Friday, April 26th. No projects will be taken late. Mrs. Hauger's last day is April 26th.

Box Tops, Lids, and Tabs - OH MY

Our library is collecting box tops for our school. In the process of helping that cause, I found that a number of the packages also has the Lids to turn in for helping cure breast cancer. So I am putting a few things out there so that we can be a little more aware and help with the things we already are buying.

**1** Box tops can now be found in a number of products NOT JUST FOOD. They can be found on Kleenex boxes, paper, ect. When you are at the store and have the option of getting a package that has a box top or not pick up the one with the box top. It you don't want to cut them apart from the packaging just bring in the whole package and I will cut them apart for you.

**2** Breast cancer lids – We will be mailing these in periodically during the semester.

**3** Pop Tops – We used to collect pop tops in the past in this building. Mrs. Hulfeld's daughter volunteers at the Ronald McDonald house. We will be giving them to her to donate in New Mark's name.

I am going to have my team work on collecting these items. Please help us with our collection. Let's take a little time this semester to increase our awareness and/or our students in easy ways to help.
