Week of May 28-May 31

Highlights of the Week:

  • Special thanks to Financial Horizons Credit Union for an engaging interactive presentation on how to manage money and personal finances. Students were engaged and loved choosing their own house and cars.  They were able to take home their portfolios and calculators.  Thank you so much to Amy Arends and Caroline Johnson who volunteered to help! 

  • We have been finishing up assessments for report cards, as well as finalizing writing pieces, reading standards aas well as Bill of Rights, Constitution and Economics units. 

  • We had a fun day Thursday walking to Taco Bell for lunch, the Bite of Reality and then our summer birthday/going away party for Shauna.  We will all miss Shauna and Jack next year.

  • Students have enjoyed having Mr. Lenon this semester and won his contest between classes.  This means he is taking them to Maverick on Tuesday.  This is bad timing because that is when I planned to take them also.  :(  So... Please send money for Maverick to go with Mr. Lenon on Tuesday morning at 10:30am.
