Picture day for the middle school is October 3! Make sure you're ready and dressed to impress. There are usually make up days for people who were absent, but how about we just show up on the third and make everyone's life easier - ok? Awesome!

Just  heads up to anyone checking grades.  I've entered the project grades but I still have a few homeworks and a test to enter for the 8th grade (don't worry - if it was bad I would have entered it long ago so you would be prepared). Grades should be final by Tuesday.

Hooray and welcome to my new site. In retrospect it was probably not a good idea to begin the 24-48 hour site migration process before the 4:30 Friday homework posting deadline, but so be it.  

Either way, as you've hopefully noticed, there is now a page for Grade 8 and Grade 11. No one has any excuses anymore for doing the wrong homework. Also, there is a resources page that contains the syllabi and will be the home for other universal resources as the year progresses.

Additionally, this front home page will be a point of contact used for posting news and announcements that apply to all of my students.

See you Monday!
