The Second Quarter officially started on Monday, November 9th. We read about the inner and outer planets in Life Science. We watched a lot of videos on the planets. Students have a test on the planets next Friday. In American History, we played Jeopardy Review, and we had a test on the times after the Civil War. Students started working on their History Google Slides Project to present to the class in December. We had our sixth test in the Saxon Math series. We also had a test on subjects and predicates in English class. We played Ultimate Frisbee and Scooter Polo in Physical Education this week. We enjoyed a Dill Pickle on Friday as we celebrated National Pickle Day. I enjoyed having the time to meet and discuss your child’s progress at the Parent-Teacher Conferences on Monday and Tuesday. Be safe and wear a mask. Let us keep the spread of Covid-19 from happening in our school.

Remember to check FastDirect weekly to see how your child is doing. The schedule of assignments due for the upcoming week is also listed under each subject (typically I do it by Sunday night). The date in FastDirect is the day it was assigned. It is typically due one or two days later. Remember you can correct papers that are a C or below.
May the Lord continue to shower your homes with His love and grace! Be safe and wear a mask!
Working for the Lord,
