Welcome to Week 7 (18-22 Sept)

Welcome back… I hope you each weathered Hurricane Irma without any significant damage to your homes.  The week of missed school was certainly not planned, but we will work hard to make up for lost time and stay on track in each course.  Your student’s will receive their Progress Reports this week.  For those of you who earned grades below what you expected/hoped, I’d encourage you to work to improve your attention during classes and study skills at home.

A reminder to my 8th grade parents – our homeroom has been assigned a Movie Night themed basket for the Fall Basket Raffle… all items are due to me no later than this Friday.  To date, I have only received contributions from 4 (out of 20) 8th grade families, and would greatly appreciate any contributions you can make.  Examples of items that are in keeping with our theme include popcorn, movie gift cards, DVD/BlueRay movies, other snacks/drinks, etc.

A reminder to take a look at their students’ Schoology Apps on their IPads.  Schoology is new software that many teachers will use to post class lecture/slides — for my classes, this will be the best and most up-to-date information regarding material we are covering and assignment specifics/due dates.

  • Monday – Return to school; since no hot lunches will be served, students must bring a lunch.
  • Weekly Mass – Wednesday morning
  • Friday – last day to make Raffle Basket Contributions
