23 - 27 May (Week 38)

It's the last week of content for the school! Next week will be full of a variety of assemblies, activities, and getting ready for summer. Good job so far! But don't quit this week! We're still covering important concepts and these activities will still go in the grade book.

As a reminder, the redo deadline is this Friday at 3:00 p.m. No work will be accepted the last week of school. There are two after school lessons this week for students who wish to gain a few replacement points. They will take place Monday and Friday at 2:35 and focus on topics from this year's content. They include a mini-lecture (about 5 minutes) and about 30-45 minutes of work time to complete the task. Sign up is required so that I know how many students to plan on and you won't be allowed in if you are late (past 2:35.)
