CTP IV week

This week we tackle standardized testing and have fun, too! Monday through Thursday will be a "B" schedule. On Thursday after testing we will celebrate Yom HaAtzmaut. This is a fun day filled with Israeli-related activities. On Friday we will have a regular schedule.

PLEASE: Get a good night's sleep each day and eat a healthy breakfast. You may bring a book to read if you have time in your testing room. You may use a simple calculator for Math part 2. Mr. Heyen will be the testing administrator for my (our) advisory. I will be with the eighth graders.

Monday: Adverb Unit Review. You will receive the Study Guide for this unit's test, which will be on April 28/29.

Tuesday and Wednesday: Discussion of A Wrinkle in Time and When You Reach Me. We will cover allusion, foreshadowing, and flashback. We'll also talk about the discussion questions you completed in class, and will play the $10,000 Pyramid Game!

Thursday: Celebration of Yom Ha Atzmaut

Friday: Test on When You Reach Me/A Wrinkle in Time  You will not need to cite evidence for this test, but it will be open note, open book as always.

As you look forward to summer, there are several camps available for you and your parents to explore: SUMMER CAMPS

In honor of the $10,000 Pyramid Game, enjoy this comic! Be sure to look at the category name to understand the punch line.
