Thursday, 3/14: Welcome Guest Teacher, SRI, Vocab, Giver Project

Welcome Guest Teacher! Remember: The Guest Teacher will be rating each class 1-10 for cooperation and behavior. Anything less than an 8 will result in “consequences.” The Guest Teacher will also leave a note about how things went in each class. It had better be a good note.


TOMORROW’S TEST: Unfortunately, tomorrow’s test will not be available until about 7:00 am tomorrow (Friday). Study the vocab practices, the poem we read yesterday, and the Husker Du test for your class.
