Weekend Update

I will be seated in the soaking chair at Applefest tomorrow!  Come say "Hi" and even give it a try!  We appreciate your support for this school fundraiser.

This weekend there is no new homework, though some students are finishing up work started in class today or are catching up on missing assignments.

Just a reminder that Letter #2 is due on or before the 22nd, letter # 3 is due on or before October 5, and the students will be doing book talks in front of the class on October 7. 

We'll be starting our 21st century skill-building on Monday with the assigning of student emails and the sending of our first message in language arts class.  If you've never taught a technology skill to a room full of adolescents, you probably wouldn't realize that it feels as monumental as taking those first steps on the moon!  Wish me (and your child!) super-human patience!  :)

Progress reports should be coming home on Thursday, so keep an eye out.  Feel free to call your child's advisor or Mrs. Demasi if one does not come home with your child. 

Enjoy the sunny day tomorrow after this week of cold and rain.  I know I will.
