Class Information

Math- . Students will continue to practice with parallel lines cut by transversals. To practice, students play the game "if your mathy and you know it clap your hands". This game will give students practice with angle measurements as they determine different relationships between angles when two parallel lines are cut by a transversal. Announcement: Unit 4 quiz will be Friday! Students recieved unit 4 week 1 homework on Monday. This is due by next Monday, January 11. Next Monday will be our unit 4 test review. Tuesday, January 12 is our unit 4 test over supplementary angles, interior/exterior angles of triangles, vertical angles, and parallel lines cut by transversals.


Science- Today students will be reviewing what makes something "alive" or not and will be discussing cell theory and microscopes. We will be taking notes and completing a worksheet.


Social Studies- Today students are continuing thier work on the executive Branch. They have done a great job!! They are finding out the president has a lot jobs to do!


English Language Arts - Students are finishing their notes over the three components of argumentative writing: claim, counterclaim, and rebuttal, and then finding those components in an article. Their notes and the article are glued into their Interactive Notebooks.

Snow Closure and Delay Communication Reminder

North Kansas City Schools provides several ways for you to get the latest information on district school closings, including early release or a two-hour delayed start on days when weather is hazardous:

In case inclement weather causes the district to delay school start times or cancel classes for the day, these are the ways that information is communicated to the public:



1. District Website: www.nkcschools.org provides the first notification of school closings and other cancellations within minutes of a decision.

2. SchoolMessenger: Phone, email and optional text messages are sent to school families when classes are canceled, delayed or students are released early.

3. Social Media: We will post information at www.facebook.com/NKCSchools and www.twitter.com/NKCSchools.

4. Radio & TV: Local stations share announcements on-air and on their websites.

For those who received a letter this fall from Transportation regarding snow routes, alternate routes have been posted on the Transportation page at: http://www.nkcschools.org/transportation.
