THE WEEK AHEAD:
This Wednesday is Picture Day; students are to come to school in uniform, as usual. They will have individual photos taken, and we will also take a class photo. This Friday is Grandparents Day, with dismissal at 12 noon. We start class computer time this week; we will be using a variety of websites, and your child now has a list in the homework folder of login information for all of these programs. As we continue to experience warm weather, we ask that you send your child to school with 1-2 bottles of water. As a fundraiser, the 8th graders will be selling bottles of water for $1 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
HOMEWORK (due Monday): Students should complete ixL Math skills W 2 and W 3, as well as ELA skill A 2. Students will be doing Fluency week 3, and they are to do 20-30 minutes of reading each night.
Religion: We continue chapter 2, learning about Sacred Scripture.
Math: We continue learning about geometric constructions.
