April 22 - 26

Wow!  Only 9 days of school left.

7th grade:  We will be doing a variety of activities this week involving probability to tie up the year.  Please remind your student to stay focused.  This week and next are very important to next years learning.  I look forward to a great 9 days.

8th grade:  We have started the CONSUMER UNIT.  Woohoo!  I love this unit and so will your child.  They will receive jobs, possibly get married and have children.  They will get a chance to discuss the many financial challenges that "real living" has in store for them.  They will shop for cars, houses and groceries.  They will pay for health insurance, car insurance and pay utility bills.  It is so much fun and I believe your child will have fun with it as well.  Please take advantage of the great conversations this unit may produce at home.

Algebra:  Tomorrow (monday) students will begin taking the 2 day semester test.  We will finish off the year with a Budget unit that will be fun and interesting for the students.

This will be my last entry for this school year.  I hope my blog was helpful.

Thanks for all you do,
Bev Lund
