Stock Market Game Meeting

There will be a meeting for all Stock Market Game participants in Ms. Hanna's room during advisory Friday, January 29th.


It's UIL time! This is for all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.

Students have received an email to sign up for UIL Academic events. There is something for everyone! Chess, math, writing, speaking, debating, the list is virtually endless... and AWESOME!

Sign-ups are now through February 4th. After you complete the sign up, UIL coaches will send out notes and letters for you to come tryout and be on the team for the event you are interested in.

UIL competitions will be in April. After the competition, there is a celebration party! UIL participants will take a school day and celebrate at a location chosen by participants.

Information about the various events can be found in the HCTV video.

Annotated Bibliography Assignment

The next assignment for the Passion Project is the Annotated Bibliography. For each of the 5 sources, students must submit a correct MLA citation as well as a statement explaining why the source is reliable. More information is available in the lesson on
Research Methods and Materials.

Students who were absent this week should be sure to review this lesson.

TEDxYouth@Austin RSVP Email

TEDxYouth@Austin has recently emailed an RSVP link to registered attendees. The purpose of this is to determine if those registered still plan to attend. The page will say "register," rather than RSVP. This is due to limitations within the EventBrite system. If you have any questions, please contact the event's organizers.
