Big Week...coming

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Get some rest this weekend, because next week will be a doozy!

Monday - HAL & Doman will be going to Snow Canyon Science Experience.
Tuesday - ??? & ??? will be going to Snow Canyon AND Debating!
Wednesday - ??? & ??? will be going to Snow Canyon AND Debating!

If it is NOT your day for fun, you will attend your regular classes. Language Arts will be having a read-a-thon for students in the regular classes that day (yea, Debate!)

ALSO, there will be Thunderbolt Time on THURSDAY and FRIDAY next week (only).

Whew! Once we get done with that, we'll get Tri 3 book experiences (not the usual) done, and then we'll start TESTING (ugh).

Trimester 3

We have begun work on a variety of new standards with the new trimester. In Language Arts, we are focusing on forming an effective argument, which will lead to a debate and workshop the end of March. In Social Studies, we have moved into the Middle Ages. Period 2/3 has developed a unit plan and their own rubric for their most recent assignment on feudalism.

Upcoming important dates:
Spring Break 3/12-3/16
Debate workshop/SPAR 3/27-3/28
Spring Recess 4/6-4/9 (Easter weekend)
CRT Testing begins the end of April
