Learning Curve

9th Grade

Welcome to Week 2!

It has been a wonderful start to our 2nd week for our 9th grade students. Thank you for turning in all our class earthquake kits. We are ready to go!

We have begun our Workout Wellness Program. We sat down as a class and decided what we enjoyed doing and what new sports we wanted to experience. We will choose different activities as the year progresses. We were very grateful for the donation of a basketball and tennis equipment!

Our first schedule is as follows:

Mon:Running Tues:Basketball Wed:Tennis Thurs: Yoga Fri: Running

In Literature, we have been working on grammar, reading comprehension, daily writing and creating exciting reading experiences and will start our first novel study next week!

Don't forget to bring in a pleasure reading book for LC reads!

In Pre-Algebra, we are reviewing working with exponents and negative and positive integers. In Biology, we are reviewing the Scientific Method and will be attempting our 1st lab this week.

During World Civilizations, we are studying how different countries are governed. Currently we are looking into the U.S. Constitution and will create our own class constitution. In our study of Spanish we are learning about greeting phrases, the Spanish alphabet and school vocabulary.

Please remember to check class agendas nightly as homework is assigned daily.

Thank you for all of your help and support in advance!


Ms. Hendrickson

Cardinal Kids Day at Stanford!

On Saturday, September 12th, starting at 5 PM, there will be a variety of fun, family-oriented activities available in the Fan Fest area before the Stanford football game against Central Florida, which kicks off at 7:30 PM. Tickets to the football game against Central Florida are free for our Students in Learning Curve and just $20 for older siblings and adults. Learning Curve student tickets can be asked for by contacting Ms. Hendrickson. We also wanted to see if LC families were interested in Hosting a Tailgate Social here at HTS before the game to get to know families from our new program and the middle school. Make sure that you place your order by Thursday, September 3 to guarantee that you are seated with the other Hope Technology School families.
