Week 10 — Oct 13

We’ve made it to the end of the first quarter (almost–the quarter ends on Tuesday). How’s it going so far? Are you happy with your grade at this point? This is the time when you can really make changes if you’re not happy with your average, so don’t mess around and wait too long.

Speaking of grades, I was not blown away by the class performance on the DGP test on Friday. Expect a stern conversation about that in class on Monday and some of your parents will have received an email regarding your grades. We’ve also got another big grade coming up on Monday. Your Quarter 1 Book Talk should be completed by the end of the day on Monday, and as of Friday, there were still 29 people who hadn’t completed a book talk. I’ve got an appointment on Monday that I cannot change, so the cut-off is 3:45pm. If you have not completed your Book Talk by that point, then you will receive a 0. You’ve had the whole quarter to get this done, so I hope that you’re not scrambling to meet these deadlines at this point.

A final point of business–I will be sending home field trip forms for our Oct 30 field trip to the Davis Theater. Please make sure that you return those forms so that we can get everything in order for our trip. Thank you for your help!

Let’s look forward to this week, shall we?
