August 28 - 31, 2017

Friday, September 1st is California Admissions Day and there will be no school for LAUSD.

It is very hot this week.  Please send your child with plenty of water, healthy snacks and a long-sleeved shirt to wear in class when the air conditioning is running.

There will be a Mid-module math test on Thursday.  This test will cover lessons 1 - 10.  Students have the workbook, exit tickets and brief quizes to use for studying.  I have spoken to the students about showing all work and checking their work.

We have begun the first module of Wit & Wisdom, the Language Arts program.  We have begun reading, writing and discussing the difference between literal and figurative language.

Please be certain to sign up to receive messages from Remind and also sign up to follow my blog.  I give weekly updates on the blog.

Enjoy the four day weekend!
