Week of November 21st

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm sure everyone is ready for a short school week!

On Monday we will be taking a formative assessment in the computer lab. The assessment gives me an idea what the students know for the state assessments and helps direct my teaching.

On Tuesday we will be taking a sample of the middle school population to determine what our school looks for in a presidential candidate. This will launch the Social Studies project that will begin after Thanksgiving break.

No homework will be assigned for the holiday weekend
