Mr. Ross' Weekly Newsletter
March 27, 2015
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
What Will We Be Learning This Week?
There will not be any WTW spelling this week due to the short week.
Although there will not be a USA Studies Weekly this week (due to the short week), we will continue to learn about the causes of the Civil War.
Any missing USA Studies Weekly assignments must be turned in by Thursday, 4/2. Otherwise they will receive a 0%. Please see me if you have any questions.
We have finished our Energy Unit, and we will have the unit test on Thursday. Students should be studying for this daily.
Here is the link to the unit study guide for your reference:
We will start our unit on weather this week to get a head start before break. This is a lengthy unit, we should be finishing in mid-May.
