Students: it’s possible that Mrs. Sparhawk took grades on the D.O.L. (grammar assignment) today. Please ask her if she did. If so, it’s now possible to download a D.O.L. makeup sheet right here on Clipboards. Just click on the “Assignments” button at the top and download one of the D.O.L. makeup assignments. (Or you can just get one from the makeup work center at school.)
Parents: our next vocabulary test will be given on Friday, March 23, 2012. That is also the last day of the quarter, so if a student knows that he/she will be absent on March 23, please have him/her plan to take the test in advance. Also, because the last day of 3rd quarter is so near, this Friday, March 16, 2012 will be the last day to turn in make-up work or extra credit for 3rd hour. Students will be given a progress report today or tomorrow (last updated on Thursday last week) to show them if any work is missing. Mrs. Spwahawk will staple this into their agendas, so parents can see it too.
Students: we also copied this week’s assignments into our agendas today, so parents can plan ahead with us. If you were absent today, please take a moment and copy your assignments from the agenda board. Thanks!
Do you remember the word cluster graphic organizer that we used last week? (It’s in the Tuesday box if you need one, or you can click on the link I’ve provided there.) We used our dictionaries to define our “Word Cluster” terms today. We will be tested over these words on Friday, March 23, 2012, so even if you were absent today, you’ll still need to copy down definitions for those terms. Set an appointment to come in at lunch or after school to use a dictionary with your “Word Cluster” graphic organizer please. Students may use dictionary.com to define their words; just make sure the definition you choose works for the word in its context.
