Week of December 12th

This week in science, students will explore the uses of minerals, as well as how minerals form and are mined. Students are really looking forward to the “Cookie Mining” lab next week after the test. The test over minerals (chapter 2) will be Monday, December 19th. Due to scheduling conflicts, there will be no study group for this test. However, we will review in class on Friday. If you know your child will be absent on Monday 12/18, please have them make arrangements to take the test early.

A HUGE thank-you to all who have brought in items for our adopted Christmas family. There is still time to help- if you’d like to make a cash donation or purchase a gift please do so by this Friday, December 16th. You can view the list of items still needed here.

Student Council will be selling holiday-grams for 25 cents and cookies for 50 cents on Wednesday-Friday of this week.

All absent or late work needs to be turned in by this Friday, December 16th to be counted for your child’s 2nd quarter/1st semester grade.

For students/parents from my homeroom: There are several items needed for our Christmas party on Wednesday, December 21st. Contact our homeroom mom, Mrs. Havens, or myself to help. You can also see the list on our “Wish List” page here.
