First of all, I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to those of you that came out for our student-led conferences last night. We had a great turn out and I really enjoyed the conversations that we had with our children! Some awesome goals were set last night! If you weren't able to come out, your child will bring their report card home this evening. Please make sure to sign the envelope and return it ASAP. If you'd like a conference, please check the "conference" box beside your signature and include your phone number or e-mail so that we can contact you to get it set up. :)
Part 1 of 3 of the Tic Tac Toe assessment is due TOMORROW! It was assigned a little over two weeks ago and your child should have discussed it with you, for it required your signature. If they do not have a project to turn in tomorrow, they will take the quiz instead--no exceptions! A completed study guide is worth 10% of the quiz grade. The study guide was given out on Monday to those who had planned on taking the quiz all along. If you are not sure what this project is, or if you have any questions/concerns, PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me!
This week, we have started discussing the processes that occur inside of plants, specifically photosynthesis and cellular respiration. You should see a few pages of notes in your child's notebook that we finished taking yesterday. If you have not seen them, or if your child was absent and needs to catch up, the PowerPoint is attached below.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
