Thanksgiving Week

To all of my regular viewers...I am so sorry that I missed posting this week's assignments! I had no idea it was missed until Thursday night. Next time I miss a week, feel free to shoot me an email and I will get it up.

For Thanksgiving week....

Final research papers are due in 6th grade on Monday morning. No exceptions.

My classes have no homework Monday night or over the Thanksgiving holiday except to practice List 14 Spelling words. Those words will be tested on Wednesday, December 3, when we come back from the break so everyone needs to be ready.

Don't forget that we need you to send in your requested item Tuesday morning. Keep in mind that the feast is for the students and staff only.

Have a blessed time with family and friends next week.

Homework 9/13/14

Welcome back from Fall Break! I hope everyone got some much needed rest, relaxation, and fun in over the last week.


1) Start working on Silent Auction donations and items for our Harvest Festival Basket. I am sending home a tax letter to show to businesses as you ask for donations. Make as many copies as necessary of the letter. I have gotten a very nice gift card a restaurant just by asking. If we all did that, this would be the most successful Harvest Fest yet!

2) I am also sending home a letter inviting your child to be a part of a LEGO mini-club sponsored by myself. If you are interested in your child participating, send in the $20 club fee (to me -- not the office) and the permission slip by Thursday. To complete all 3 sets that I have planned, we need 10 people in the club; otherwise I will minimize our sets to 2.

3) Harvest Festival is November 8. We will be checking with you to sign up for a volunteer spot in the coming weeks. Keep your eyes open.


Due to my accident just before Fall Break, we did not have our discussion and quiz over the first 3 chapters of Noah Webster on October 3. Therefore, our new schedule will be chapters 1-3 on Wednesday, OCtober 15 and Chapters 4-6 OCtober 17
