Conferences are coming again soon!

I recently read an article about conferences that I thought I would share with parents. As I was reading, I found myself thinking, "I wish a parent would ask me that about their child."

Parent request conferences will be held on Thursday, December 3rd. I know that many of you met with teacher in October, but this is your chance to meet with teachers that you did not meet with then, or to follow up with someone. You can contact the office to schedule a time.

Remember, you may email or call a teacher at anytime if you have an urgent matter.

Class Update

This week math students will complete a mini-unit on exponents and Scientific Notation. There will be a test over this information on Monday, November 23rd.

Algebra classes will finish Chapter 6 with a test on Friday this week.

These tests will be the final grade for Trimester 1, which means this is the last chance to raise (or lower) your grade.
