We have completed the first 30 of 120 lessons in our math book. American History students finished teaching their sections on Chapter 2 this week. They started working on their next project on Chapter 3. I am checking to see if they learned anything from their first presentation. Students in World History had a test on ancient Middle East. We started a new chapter on the Middle East this week. We did two labs this week in Life Science. One lab was very smelly, and one lab we tested different fluids for pH levels. Students are reading a book of their choice. They will be writing a book report on Google Docs on Friday. We are playing Ultimate Frisbee in PE class. Our Chapel Offerings are going to “Mon Ami, Jesus” (My Friend, Jesus). Please try to remember to bring an offering on Wednesdays. We have given 47 books to the children in Africa & Haiti. The goal is 100 books by January. The First Quarter ends on Friday, November 1st.

Remember to check FastDirect weekly to see how your child is doing. The schedule of assignment 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.
May the Lord continue to watch over your homes with His Love and Grace!
Working for the Lord,
