Cramer's Class

This week and next week....

What did we learn this week and what is scheduled for next week......


Happy weekend to everyone! It's hard to believe we have only 1 more week until the end of the 1st nine weeks!


Since it is the end of the quarter this next week, we will be having several tests. First of all, the end of quarter DDA tests will be held next week. These are the county tests, formerly known as Interims or Benchmark tests. Language Arts will be on Monday, and Math, on Tuesday, and both will be done online. Science and Social Studies (Wednesday and Thursday) will be done with paper and pencil.


Next, my math class and Mrs. Capps math class will also take the Division and Word Study test this week. Both classes will take it on Tuesday. This will have a lot of difficult concepts on it so please make sure to help your child study.


Please remember that Monday, October 12, there will no school for students. It will be a teacher work day.


I hope everyone has a wonderful week and stays dry!
