Winters’ Words for the Week!!!

“The harder the conflict, the greater the triumph.” ~ George Washington

We have an intense nine weeks ahead of us. However, I am confident my groups will rise to any and all challenges. Please review all information under each subject heading on my blog. We will be moving at a steady pace over the next several months. It is imperative that the students complete any and all homework. This lets me know they are understanding what we are covering in class. The report cards will go home on Tuesday, 2/16/16 with the students that did not already receive  them last week. I am including several key dates below. Please add them to your calendar. If you need to talk to me please don’t hesitate to call, text, send in a note, send an e-mail, or come by, and I will do the same. Take care  and stay warm.

 

A. Winters
