Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
Happy St. Patrick’s Day Weekend. I hope everyone is green with excitement, see what I did there? We are approaching only two weeks before spring break, and the snow is starting to melt. I can’t wait for spring to officially arrive next week, and the Brewers are approaching soon too.
Only a few families have not gone on yet and checked 2nd trimester report cards. Please go on if you have not yet. Letters will go home next week to those who have not done so yet.
Spring break is coming up. The last day of school is March 28th. This means that break will start Friday, March 29th and students will come back on April 8th. Also, March 28th is also considered a Friday schedule. We will have Phys. Ed. that day.
If anyone is looking for something fun to do Saturday, WCTC is hosting the national championships of the Rube Goldberg competitions for high school. Here is the information for the event:
High School Nationals Host:
Waukesha County Technical College

I believe the judging will be around 10:30 in the morning. One of the competitors is from the southeastern part of Wisconsin.
That is all for this week. Thanks for reading Our Class Newsletter. Please email me with any questions or concerns you might have.
