Week of February 10th
What's Going on in the Classroom...
Mrs. Morelock - Math
Mrs. Sullinger - Science
We are in the middle of our Energy Unit and talking about Kinetic and Potential Energy. Students have until Thursday to complete any missing work from the previous weeks. We will be celebrate those with no missing assignments on Jan 21st.
We will be having a quiz over Kinetic and Potential Energy next week, so students can prepare for that. We have been taking notes over it and have assignments to help prepare for it.
Mr. Ruiz - English
The fact cards were graded individually so as to give students the most accurate and fair grades. In most cases, this resulted in students receiving different grades than their teammates. Students were docked points if they did not turn in the required number of cards, did not get their cards stamped and verified by me, or did not revise them when revisions were necessary.
If a student has received a zero on their fact cards, it is either due to not turning in any cards, or claiming someone else's work as their own.
Some students were removed from their debate groups due to any of the following reasons:
• Failure to meet due dates.
• Repeated plagiarism
• Taking credit for the work of other students
• Failure to be a positive and focused member of their team

It's not too early to start thinking about your student's required 8th grade immunizations! The State of Missouri requires all incoming 8th grade students to have a Tdap booster and a Meningococcal vaccine in order to enroll in 8th grade next year. While your student is out of school over winter break, have them get their vaccines and turn in an updated vaccine record to the health room when we return to school. You will have one thing to check off your to-do list to get your student ready for school next year!
School Closing Notification/Winter Weather Information
Safety is priority number one when making the determination to cancel school on any given day due to inclement weather. If snow, ice, or extreme cold make conditions unsafe, we will cancel school and add that day(s) to the end of the school year.
In the event of school cancellation, PCR-3 will get that information out as early as possible through automated phone calls and text messages, the District website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, the District Hotline (816-858-2752), and local media.
