odd day

Today was a truly odd day. Due to testing (SAT-10) only block 4 had class. Students in block 4 have a peach colored sheet to complete for homework, but no other students have homework.
I found out that some students are moving ahead in their journals and writing on a Y topice in anticipation of tomorrow's homework, which is fine. I encourage students to be proactive as much as possible!
On a less happy note, Progress reports go home next week, and I am still missing many Final draft persuasive essays and signed word whiz tests. This is particularly a problem in BLOCK 2!!! Parents, please rattle your kid's tree a little bit about getting those in to me. We're going to have a big handful of disappointed ball players when the progress reports say "incomplete!" Your help is much appreciated!
