Please Be Aware...

The end of 1st trimester is Nov. 6. This is 2 1/2 weeks from now. ALL work needs to be turned in NO LATER than Monday, Nov. 2, for credit on your trimester grade! Please get any make up or redo tests done - see Mrs. White about coming in early or staying after school to get those done.

Make a Difference Day is Saturday. We are encouraging all students (and families) to come to SRIS and help with projects around the school from 9-12 that morning.

(It's Custodian Appreciation week - give them a "thank you" for keeping our school so nice!)

1st Period won last week's school challenge - Pizza at lunch on Friday!

Have a Great Fall Break!

Students took their test on Mesopotamia today. Most of the tests so far look good. I should have them graded and entered by Monday night. On Tuesday, we will begin our unit on Egypt.

10/24 will be Make a Difference Day here at Sunrise Ridge and we are hoping to show appreciation to our custodial staff - everyone is encouraged to come to school and help with a project that will MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

10/26-30 will be Red Ribbon Week with specific themes and activities each day.

Enjoy the Fall Break long weekend - No School 10/16 or 10/19.

School and Class Items

The school's first case of H1N1 has been confirmed. The student is resting at home, on medication. We are encouraging all students to use hand sanitizer and wash their hands regularly, to use kleenex when possible, or their elbows if necessary to control sneezes. For other school measures, please check your email or the school website (found in the links to the right).

Also, we are in the middle of our Mesopotamia unit. Our test for this unit will be next Thursday, 10/15. There is no school (Fall Break) Friday 10/16 and Monday 10/19. When we return, we will be beginning our unit on Egypt.

Thank you to all those parents who came to SEP's! It was great to get a chance to talk with all of you.
