Monday and Tuesday students will work on in class research pertaining to different types of waves. They will gather information from books borrowed from the library. They will also need to bring a piece of poster board to create a poster illustrating their information.
Wednesday and Thursday will be in class presentations and Friday we will be attending ballet @ 12:45. If there are any other presentations that need to be made we will complete them that morning or after we return from the ballet. PROGRESS REPORTS will be sent home this Thursday, December 1st. There were also several students who did not return their papers before the Thanksgiving break. Could you please see that these are returned for filing. There are only 3 weeks left in this six week period. Encourage your child to do their best in all their subjects. Thanks again for all your cooperation.

Beginning SOUND - the students will read pp. E116-121 and they will define 10 vocabulary words from this reading material. They need to learn these definitions tonight because there will be a vocabulary exam tomorrow and they will NOT be able to use their folder. We will begin discussion of this material after the test on Tuesday. Students are aware of their average for their report cards for the second six weeks period. You might want to ask them for their grade. Report cards will be sent home Monday, November 14th. We will be having a test on SOUND Friday. Have your child study every night. Signed papers will come home Thursday. Please sign and return them on Friday. Thanks for your cooperation.
