Well this is the last week.  Know you are glad not to have online school any more.  I will post my 4th quarter grades on Thursday at noon.  Any assignments turned in after that will not be included.   Your assignment, both 7th and 8th grade, is to write a reflection on your year in history class.  Tell me what you liked, disliked, learned and would change. Doesn't have to be long at all.  Be honest.  Some times to remember are: 
     Locker clean out              May 27 and 28  10 til 2

     Yearbook pickup             June 8    8-12   and June 9  2 til 5

 *Remember no assignment accepted after Thursday at noon.

It has been a really unusual year.  We made it to the end by sticking together and praying for each other.  You all did a great job and I hope learned something along the way.  Enjoy your summer and hopefully we will see each other next year.
Ok guys we only have a week and a half left of school.  Remember the times you are to clean out your lockers.  Again the assignment is due on Friday.   Really miss teaching you in person.  I pray for you daily that all is well and you are safe.
