Winter break is almost here!!!  Hope you have fun and get to relax, but remember that we don't come back to school until January 2nd and the January HSAs begin on January 7th.  Take time to review over winter break so you retain all that you've been learning this semester.  Have a Happy New Year!

Week of December 10th, 2012

There are only 13 school days left until the January HSAs begin!  Be sure to attend after school tutoring each day it is offered to finish preparing for success on the assessments.  Also, you should plan to do some review over winter break so you don't forget what you've learned.  You can take home your book(s) and notes from class, and you can do online review (see below).   Review - it does a brain good!!!
