All physicals will begin at 4:30 p.m. and the cost is $10 cash only. Middle school students can attend any physical date, however a parent must be present. Blank physical forms will be available on site, but it is highly encouraged that students bring a completed physical form with them. Physical forms are available in the main office.
Our focus this week will be to finish the research papers and begin working on our scrapbooks. I am attaching copies of the rubric for the paper, the scrapbook, and the oral presentation of the scrapbooks on the righthand sidebar so that parents and students will know what the expectations are. I am also attaching a copy of the pages required for the scrapbook. You can also find a copy of the research biography directions and the directions for the bibliography. Students either have already, or will receive, copies of all of these pages.
New Missing Work lists will be posted tomorrow. Students will have until this Friday, May 29, 2015, to turn in any incomplete or missing work. Some of this work can be taken home if a student sees me in advance. Please encourage your student to check the Missing Work list!
