The Week of December 14, 2015

It's the last week of 2015 at Charles Ellis! Let's make the most of our little time together this calendar year by having a good week.

We will finish up our work with inequalities by evaluating one-step inequalities.  You already know this skill, because it is similar to what you did when you solved one-step equations.  You will have homework Monday and Tuesday evening to complete, as well as a quiz (the last of the term) Thursday.  Don't forget to complete you weekly Compass Learning requirement  (2 choices) by Friday.

Monday I will give you your term 2 "I Can" booklet.  This booklet will give you more practice with the topics we've discussed in math and science during this past term. Use it not only to review your work, but to also identify areas of strength and need to guide your future work in our classroom.  Please complete the booklet this week during workitme.  After you finish it, hand it in for me to give you "permission to check".  Once you get permission, use the key to check your work.  Hand it back in once you've checked it, so you can earn a participation grade for the assignment.

All 2nd term work is due to me Thursday.  Be sure to log into PowerSchool to see if you owe me any missing items.   Any work not handed in by the end of the term will receive a grade of "zero".

I'm really looking forward to this Friday because we will get a chance to reveal our secret pals as part of our holiday book exchange!  I have a few other fun holiday activities to share with you, as well.

There are a few more items to keep in mind this week:
1.  I will NOT be holding tutorial this week.
2.  Friday is a dress-down day.  It will cost $1 to participate.  All proceeds will go towards the 8th grade "bridging" ceremony that will be held at the end of the year.
3.  Friday is the last day of school before holiday break.  Classes will resume Tuesday, January 5, 2016.

Have a good weekend,
Mr. Trent
