Sept. 11 and other news...

Parents - Today in class we are watching the BrainPop video about the September 11, 2001, attacks and having a short discussion. It is hard to believe that it's been 8 years - I found myself getting choked up listening to the remembrances on the radio this morning.

We will be working on our Map Your Own Island maps today. I expect that they should all be complete to turn in on Monday.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday next week I will be at a professional conference in Las Vegas with a few other teachers from our school. Mrs. Williams will be the substitute teacher again for my classes - I really appreciate her! Some of the students are wanting to retake or make up their Geography tests next week. Please allow Mrs. Williams to decide when she is available for that. I will be back on Thursday and Friday, students may come before or after school any day when I return.

I hope all the students are enjoying their Thunderbolt time this session. Remind them that they need to maintain their grades in all their classes AND make sure that all assignments get turned in AND have good citizenship. Any one of those areas with an issue can have a student in Interventions for 2nd session (9/29 - 10/23). Our Take Charge goal for next week is ORGANIZATION! Please check your child's planner each day to make sure they are using this valuable tool...

Have a great weekend!
