What a crazy week we had here in the suite. Some of your scholars will be bringing home math work since they haven't quite mastered the GCF and LCM material. I HAVE to move on and they will be working over the weekend to solidify those skills. We will be finishing up the first chapter next week, and we need to have a chapter test by the end of the month. We are a bit behind where I would like to see us at this point, but much of that was due to my trip.
ALL SCHOLARS SHOULD BE STUDYING THEIR LATIN THIS WEEKEND! There is a Latin quiz on Monday. Please make sure your scholars look over the terms.
NWEA TESTS FOR OUR CLASS BEGIN THIS NEXT WEEK, WE WILL BE TESTING ALL WEEK AT 8:30 IN THE MORNING. PLEASE BE SURE YOUR SCHOLAR IS WELL RESTED AND FED BEFORE SCHOOL!
These tests provide the baseline for the rest of the year.
Next Friday the 23rd is our first Speech and Debate Club meeting after school from 1:00 to 2:00. Talk to your scholar and see if they are interested in competing and going to tournaments to observe and watch high school students perform. If so, they are welcome to join club. There will be more details forthcoming.
I am hoping we can have our gods and goddesses gathering on the 28th of the month, from 2:00 to 3:00. If you are interested in providing a Greek snack for the class, please contact Mrs. Bloker and we will put your name down. All parents are welcome to join us as our gods and goddesses perform mini presentations about their character.
We will be working on Act 4 of Julius Caesar next week, and it is a long one, therefore I am moving the final test to the 29th of September. Scholars will be informed on Monday. Act 5 is quick, but I want them to have time to study.
We will spend our history time studying Judaism more next week. I will be bringing in some artifacts, and we will study the Jewish calendar, find their birth months, and learn about Hanukkah and Dreidel. When December comes around, which will be quickly at this rate, we will be prepared to celebrate!
Book Report books should be finished over the weekend and all scholars should be working on their projects that are due next Friday, the 23rd.
Have a glorious weekend!
