As we are rapidly coming to the end of the year, just a bit of information for you:)
I have gone through the extra supplies you provided at the beginning of the year and have bagged them up for each student, setting them aside until nextweek. You may want to get these when they come home on Thursday and save them for the fall.
Wednesday is graduation for the 8th grade. Students need to be in uniform for the special Mass.
There will be several end-of-the-year tests this wee. For social studies there will be a review packet (study guide) made up of a number of the chapter tests. Students are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to answer these questions, even though they will not be collected. We will corredt what is done in class on Wednesday and the test will beFriday. I will make the test using actual questions from the study guide. Reading and math tests will be spread out over a number of days so it is not overwhelming. They are really just putting into practice the work we have been doing all along. Sciene will be a simple chapter test. They will get the review sheet on Tuesday, we will correct it on Wednesday and then the test is Thursday. We will have no final Religion, grammar or spelling test. I hav enough evidence of their progress at this time to forgo further testing. Spelling this week will be an exercise in learning but not recorded as a test so as not to add to any anxiety. We will still be doing the work of the lesson.
Spelling List: Suffixes ful, ly,ion

All of these assignments have been started in class and may have been even complleted. They are, however, listed so parents as well as students have the opportunity to look over them and make any necessary changes. So, though it may look like a lot, it is rather a reflection of the day's work and not expected to all be done as homework.
