4/9 Benchmark Test

Parent and Students:  The 4/9 benchmark exam in Wednesday, May 11 (possibly Thursday, May 12 depending on review).  I have created a test review for the students to complete in class next week and they will get it on Monay.  However, they all have the necessary notes and know how far to study for the test.  It is mainly on World War II and the time after the war, up to but not including Civil Rights.  Thank you for your help with your child’s review materials.

3/9 Exam – Wednesday, 3/30

March 25th, 2011

Parents!!! — Your child will really need help studying for this exam.  They have a test review sheet to work on, and they have their blue books.  The content on this test is tough.  They need to be tested by you as often as you can find time to do so.  They can also go on the SPS web site and play computer games that have this content in them.   In addition to their test review sheet that they have to complete, they also have to review the following:  US Regions, Reconstruction, Booker T. Washington, WEB duBois, Jim Crow, and Big Business.  These last items are not on their review sheet and just came in today from the history lead teacher.

On Monday we will be covering the Great Depression.  That will probably carry over into Tuesday.  If time permits we will try to do some review in class. 

This is a challenging exam.  Please help your child review as much as possible.

Thank you for your help!!!

Mrs. Mercilliott :-)

Supplies Needed!!!!

March 8th, 2011

Parents – please purchase colored pencils for your child.  In addition, they need a pencil sharpener for their colored pencils. Make sure the sharpener has a recepticle on it for the shavings.
