Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
GOOD LUCK WOLVERINES!!! Today the high school football team plays in the state championship game. As a school we were able to go outside and support the team as they head to Madison. The whole school lined up and cheered with signs up and our voices loud as the team drived through the front area. The team was led by our police force, fire department, and a large monster truck. We wish the best of luck to the team.
Reminder that next week is a shorten week. Monday, and Tuesday are normal days, but Wednesday is a half day and we let out at 11:30. This day also marks the closing of our first trimester. Grades will be posted and avaliable by the first of Decembe. Please go on Skyward and check grades and comments. I will be checking that following Monday who has not checked within the past two weeks. I will then send home a note to those that I still need to check grades.
Please make sure you all send back to school the note that went home about the special project we are doing in class this December for writing. A note went home about two weeks ago explaining the needs of a picture frame and if possible $5.00 to purchase the rest of the materials. Even if you are NOT making wanting to give the $5.00 we are still needing the form to come back.
That is all for now, but if you are interested in any other information, please paruse the website and enjoy. Our class rules, pictures from the year, and much more can be found. If you ever have any questions, or comments, please email me!
