M 5/2 & T 5/3 (block scheduling due to CST testing)-  Finish ch 13 lesson3 vocabulary & Reading Essentials pages through p. 164

W 5/4 & R 5/5 (block scheduling due to CST testing)- Finish ch 14 lesson 1 vocabulary & Reading Essentials pages through p. 169

F 5/6- Have a good weekend!  (Reminder: early dismissal today due to CST testing; 6th graders attend ALL classes today)

I have noticed that some students are no longer using the Bret Harte Planner to record their homework.  I realize they planers may have been damaged or lost.  If needed, here is a form that students could use to record homework for an entire week. WeeklyHWList.pdf (17.77 KB)  Since we only have a month leftyou can download and print as many copies as needed for the rest of the school year.

Reminder: We will return to regular schedule next week (beginning May 9).
