The Week of April 11, 2016

This week marks a departure from our "normal" schedule because of GMAS testing.  I'm excited for another chance for you to "show what you know"!  When viewed with your classwork, homework, classroom assessments, projects, and other creations, the test can be thought of as just another opportunity to show off all you've learned this year.  As long as you try your best, you can be proud of yourself!

Monday will follow a regular schedule where we will finish up our math review presentations.  I've really enjoyed seeing you share your knowledge with your schoolmates.  I'm most impressed with the courage many of you've shown in speaking in front of your peers.  You are definitely putting our weekly grace and courtesy focus, courage, into practice!

The GMAS schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, April 12

GMAS Language Section 1 and 2

Wednesday, April 13
GMAS Language Section 3

Thursday, April 14

GMAS Math

Friday, April 15 
GMAS: Make-up Tests

Monday, April 18
GMAS Science

Tuesday, April 19
GMAS Social Studies

Wednesday, April 20
GMAS: Make-up Tests

As you know, testing days can be long and mentally draining.  Please make it a point to go to be at an appropriate hour each night and have a healthy breakfast each morning.  School breakfast is provided for free, as always, if needed.  

As stated earlier, our schedule will be modified to accommodate testing.  Your lunch, recess, and explorations times will change.  Each morning, I will make you aware of such changes.  Please be flexible as we move through the next two weeks together.  

Have a wonderful weekend!
Mr. Trent
