We are getting ready for the 2nd Annual Volleyball Game - May 27th! Tickets will go on sale next week!

Welcome Back!

I hope that everyone had a fun and restful vacation. I can't believe that May is next week! Remember that school is not over yet...we have a LONG way to go.

Volleyball practice begins on Thursday - 2:30-3:30 - Game is on May 27th
Aldrich Tour - Tuesday, April 28th - get your T-Shirt forms in by Friday

I have created a wiki - to help support math. I had to do it for a graduate class that I am taking this semester. Take a look at it and let me know what you think. It is linked to the blog. I have completed 2 chapters - ch. 8 - what our test is on - on Thursday and I started the next chapter that we will be working on - 3D shapes and surface area. I am hoping that this wiki will become a class project and the students will help me add tips and tricks to help my future students.

Great Job

Exchange City was a success! I think almost every business was successful and paid off their loan. I am also very proud of The United Way for raising about $100 for the Jimmy Fund.

I am also proud of everyone and their hard-work in the third quarter. Report Cards went home today! Keep it up for the 4th quarter!

Volleyball Game - 6th graders vs Teachers - Wednesday, May 27th
*Practices will be on Thursdays beginning after vacation

Exchange City

It is finally here - We leave for Exchange City on Wednesday - April 1st. Thank you to all for your fund-raising efforts - The Talent Show was a HUGE success. We raised enough money so Exchange City is only costing us $10 each! WAY TO GO! I will plan tp post pictures later in the week.

Talent Show - Tuesday @ 6pm - tickets are $3. We are also asking that you bring a "store-bought" backed good to sell at the Talent Show.

I am very proud of all the students - the ones that are participating and the ones that have donated their time to help make the talent show a success. This is one of the biggest fund-raisers we will do - with everyone's help it will be successful!
