Students will be called down to the gym at 8:15. We will begin the yearbook dedication ceremony for the whole school at 8:30 which will immediately be followed by the talent show. After the talent show, the 8th grade class will participate in a bench dedication in memory of Keaton Long. Extra yearbooks will be sold to 8th graders first, followed by 7th graders and finally to 6th graders or until we run out of them. The cost of a yearbook is $35.00.
At 1:00, we will begin Reward Day. Students can bring money to purchase snacks and concessions. They will be outside until 2:45 signing yearbooks and playing outside.
The 6th grade awards ceremony will take place in the gym from 9:30-10:00. Parents of students who are receiving awards are encouraged to attend. Students will also receive their exemption status today in each academic class. Please check their agendas for a yellow ticket that gives exemption status for each class period. Exemptions are based on the student's semester average for the 3rd and 4th nine weeks (January-May) and absences.
Exemptions are based on the following criteria:
60-69 Must take exams regardless of absences
If you have missed more than 5 days, you must also take exams regardless of your grade. We will watch the movie, The Secret Garden, while students receive their exemption status.
We watched The Watsons Go to Birmingham movie in class and completed a Venn diagram that compared and contrasted both the novel and the movie. The Venn diagram is our last grade for the year.
Today we finished reading the novel, The Watsons Go to Birmingham. We will be watching the movie in class on Thursday and Friday. Students must have their signed permission slip turned in by tomorrow at the beginning of class if they want to watch the movie. Students who do not have their permission slip, will be given an alternate assignment to work on in the library.
Today we went to Medieval Times on our end of the year field trip!
We completed a 15 question worksheet over chapters 7-10 of TWGTB. Students need to bring in their movie permission slips if they haven't done so already. We will be watching the movie this week in class as soon as we finish the novel.
Afterward, we read chapters 10-13. We didn't quite complete chapter 13.
Tomorrow is our field trip to Medieval Times. Please see the Weebly homepage for our most recent field trip PowerPoint! I am looking forward to a great time.
