Just a heads up that our class will begin swimming the last week of April on Wednesdays... and for the 4 weeks that follow. Please remind your sons and daughters to bring their swim suits, towels, brushes, and goggles. The students will be permitted to get a snack from the Arena's vending machines...provided they change quickly and quietly in the change rooms (and...mom and dad allow them to bring some change from home).
In math, our class has started chapter nine in the text which deals with adding and subtracting fractions. This is a very difficult unit for some students. Please remind your kids that they may come into the portable at 8:30am...when they get off the bus...for extra help. I had 7-9 students coming in early for help in algebra and all of them passed their unit test...Bravo!!! Lets keep that effort up as we only have 10 weeks of school left before the summer break.
My final reminder is for science. There is only 2-3 weeks left in science which will undoubtedly mean upcoming quizzes and units test...not to mention lab reports. All of my class should be reviewing their science notes nightly when possible.
