THE DISTRICT OFFICE SUMMER HOURS ARE
MONDAY - THURSDAY 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Week of 5/22 - 5/26
LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!!
While the school year is winding down, it is important to remember that there is still work to be done. Students will continue to work through their ten final tasks, with a due date of Tuesday at 4pm for ALL tasks to be complete. If tasks are all completed on time AND students have a C or higher as their 4th quarter grade, they will be watching Secretariat on Wednesday and Thursday as a reward for completing the year strong with the horseracing final! Students who do not meet that criteria will be working on completing the final tasks and/or other work to bring their grade up instead of watching the movie!
Week of 5/15 - 5/19
9.5 Days of School Remaining...9.5 Days of work to be done!!
This week, students will continue to work on their Final Tasks. The goal is to have a task a day done, and students will be in good shape. I am working on creating assignments in the gradebook so that you, as parents, can keep up with what has and has not been turned in and compare it to the recommended due dates I gave students! These individual assignments will be worth zero points in the grade book, as the entire project (combination of tasks) will be a single 100 point grade given when all tasks are completed.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions during these next couple of weeks!
Week of 5/8 - 5/12
Students got an awesome introduction to our final project/tasks last week when Mr. Ring came and spoke to the class about horseracing. There is a lot of math involved in horseracing, so all of the tasks for the final will incorporate horseracing in one way or another.
On Monday, students will take MAPS. Remember, growth on MAPS plays in to a student's overall grade, as a test grade (50 points) is calculated based on the amount of growth a student makes.
On Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, students will continue working through their final tasks. On Tuesday, students will receive a folder with a checklist to help keep them on track.
*Wednesday we will be gone to EPIC!
Week of 5/1 to 5/5
This week students will continue to work on their Geometry Map Projects. As I have been gone for the past couple of school days, today (Tuesday) I will be checking progress and will then determine a final deadline of either Thursday or Friday.
We also have a special guest coming in on Friday to talk to us about a real-life event that uses a lot of probability!
Homework will be dependent on how students use their class time!
Keep pushing through...we still have 4 weeks to go!!
Week of 4/24 - 4/28
Students took their Chapter 9 Individual Tests last week. Many students have expressed interest in retaking their I.T. to improve their overall grade and make sure they have a good understanding of the content, which is absolutely acceptable! In order to retake an I.T., there is a process and a timeline students must follow, which is outlined below:
Remember, to “score” better on an Individual Test, there is a process you must follow.
1.First, you need to CORRECT the original test (on the Corrections Forms).
2.Then, you need to meet with Ms. Reeves at a scheduled time to review your corrections.
3.Finally, you will schedule a time with Ms. Reeves to actually retake your test!
Deadlines for Chapter 9 I.T. Retakes
Corrections Conferences MUST be completed by Thursday, April 27th at 3:30 p.m.
Retakes can happen anytime after your Corrections Conference up until Thursday, May 4th at 4:00 p.m.
*Ms. Reeves will be gone on Friday, April 28th & Monday, May 1st! Keep this in mind when trying to retake your test!*
This week, students will be reviewing a plethora of geometry vocabulary terms, then begin a project in which they will be creating a map of a city using many geometric features. The goal is for students to be able to mostly work on this project in class, but there may be times in which students need to complete some work at home to stick to the deadlines.
Week of 4/18 - 4/21
This week is a bit of a crazy week with testing all morning, then a shortened bell schedule for the afternoon.
During afternoon class times, we will be doing interventions related to MAPS data. Students will be working on Khan Academy and in pullout groups to be able to show me that they have improved and/or continue to work toward improvement in areas in which there are deficits (whether major or minor).
There will be NO HOMEWORK!
