January 17-21, 2022

The sounds of snow shovels and dripping cold water are outside... and inside I am sorting through 360+ Homestead Studies assignments submitted in half a dozen ways and times!  (Do not be alarmed when a 0 has been entered on one of the Homestead Days from January 4-7. I will follow up with your student when we return to school.) 
Today we are celebrating the day in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Each year I re-read Dr. King's Letter from a Birmingham Jail. If you have time, you can read it here:  https://kinginstitute.stanford.edu/sites/mlk/files/letterfrombirmingham_wwcw_0.pdf
Homeroom: Beginning the new school week, we have Bring a Gift Card to School dress down day on Tuesday. The gift cards will be used to create items for the Auction in March. If your student brings a gift card ($25 value or more) they can dress down.
This week we are also completing the midyear Scantron testing. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. We have our School Mass on Thursday. As always, be sure that your student has had a good breakfast, and I'd suggest that there is a protein component as well. 
Tests, quizzes, and assignments for this week:
In LA 6, there will be a miniquiz based on Verbs lessons 4.1-4.5 on Thursday. In Reading 6, the students will take their Vocab list 7 quiz on Friday. Students in Reading 7 should be prepared to turn in Part 1 work from Heart of a Samurai.  We will have a short graded reading check on Wednesday for Part 1. In Religion 6 the students will take the Chapter 10 (Moses) quiz next Monday 1/24.
Please email me if you have any questions!
