This Wednesday we will have our first free dress day (donation of $1). The proceeds will go towards hurricane relief efforts. As we continue to experience warm weather, we ask that you send your child to school with 1-2 bottles of water. Just in case your child needs more, the 8th graders will be selling bottles of water for $1 on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, with the proceeds supporting our mission outreach.
HOMEWORK (due Monday): Students should complete ixL Math skills X 4 and X 5, as well as ELA skill A 3. Students will be doing Fluency week 4 (please initial each time they read the selection), and they are to do 20-30 minutes of reading each night (please initial all reading done at home).
Religion: We continue chapter 2, learning about Sacred Scripture.
Math: We continue learning about geometric constructions. We will be ready for our first test next week!
Reading Workshop: Everyone is to be reading a realistic fiction book. Please initial the reading log for all reading that is done at home. Click here for a copy of the reading log. READING LOG
