This week in Earth Science, we presented mini speech reports on Units 3 & 4. We did one page in our Geography book on the Westward Expansion. We also turned in our Civics Book for a final grade in American History. We had our last test in the Saxon Math Series on Lessons 1-120. We will have a Final Exam on the Saxon Math Series on Tuesday. We are reviewing our Sentence Diagramming in English class. We have a final test on Friday. We will finish our spelling books next week. The final review spelling test will be on Wednesday. We read some interesting articles in our weekly reader, God’s World. Students did an excellent job cleaning up Highway 80 on the St. Johns Adopt-A-Highway section. God tells us to protect and watch over this precious planet that He has given to us. Next Friday marks the final day of school for our Eighth Graders. We are giving offerings for Heifer International which provides animals to poor countries to help them start farms and to raise money. Students have given enough to buy a flock of ducks, a hive of honey bees, a flock of chickens, some rabbits, a sheep, a pig, a goat, an alpaca, a water buffalo, and a mating pair of alpacas. We are currently giving offerings for a heifer. Keep bringing in those offerings throughout the remainder of the school year. Praise the Lord!

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 protection, love, and grace! Be safe and wear a mask! Praise to Our Savior, Jesus!
