Homework assignments and Spelling lists for week of April 23, 2018

Hi there Panthers!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!

Please be sure to pay attention to the newsletter for the FSA testing calendar, testing is starting this week!

Sixth grade FSA starts Monday, April 23rd; seventh grade FSA starts Wednesday, April 25th; and eighth grade FSA starts on Monday, April 30th.  Please be sure that your child has a good night’s sleep, eats a well-balanced breakfast, and gets to school on time.  I know that your child will do well.  Please take a moment to encourage him/her to have confidence in his/her skills, use all the strategies we have discussed and practiced in class and to put forth that best effort. 

 

We are starting to collect items for our Middle School class auction basket. Every year our group presents a basket with a theme of “Around the Town”.  We gather gift cards, gift certificates, items that represent our city (restaurants, stores, salons, car services, theme parks, etc.).  We would appreciate any donations.  If you need further clarification please do not hesitate to contact me.
