    For ALL Classes - NO Spelling This Week.

    For ALL Classes - It is unusual but all of my classes are having a test on Wednesday. I realize you normally receive a study guide before tests; however, that will not be possible this time. If you take the time to study the entire unit we just completed and make sure you are confident with each concept, you should do well on the test. Review each rule, example, and diagram. Spend time thoroughly going over any pages in which you struggled. If you had any ungraded assignments, please have your parents check them to 100% so that you can study those review exercises as well. We will not regrade these assignments on Wednesday; I will look over your work to ensure that it was finished and was graded by your parent. On Wednesday before you begin the test, I will answer any questions and review any material as needed. I feel assured that each of you can and will do well on this test since studying is your only assignment for me and we have been reviewing the unit since the beginning of the semester. Study hard!

    Stay safe, warm, and enjoy God's beautiful snow!
