This week I am hoping to read through Chapter 22 of The Westing Game. We will have two quizzes. One is a take-home quiz DUE ON TUESDAY. Some students are not doing well on the quizzes. Here are two things to help them scores: first, read carefully and maybe read the assigned chapters twice; second, include the question in the answer.
As we enter into Holy Week, we remember the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus. This is the core of our Catholic belief.
Sixth graders are reviewing the Ten Commandments. They will have a quiz on them on Thursday. The Commandments help us maintain our friendship with God. On Tuesday, students will created a Want Ad for a friend for God.
