This Week...

We did not have Science this week because we were preparing for the End of Quarter Benchmark Test, called MUST (Mandatory Unit System Test).

The MUST Assessment covered everything we've covered in school this year.  Most of the students were really focused and trying very hard.  That took place on Thursday.  This week, we covered Coordinate Grid and Absolute Value.

Health Projects were due this week.  Because today was a two-hour early dismissal, a number of students did not show up.  Therefore, they did not turn in their projects.  This has affected their Health Grade.  Projects can not be turned in on Wednesday, when we return, because it will be 2nd Quarter.
