Classroom Assignments:
All dates are approximate and subject to change.
Mr. Barnes' English Class
In Mr. Barnes's English class, we will complete an in-class, extended Figment about jobs...... dirty jobs...... the type of thankless jobs that are out there and get done, but no one necessarily dreams of doing them. We will connect them with some clips of the great show, "Dirty Jobs." The assignment will be due by the end of class, Tuesday. Have a lovely, restful break so we can get all energized to come back and prepare for another lovely, restful break.

Mr. Battista's Life Science Class
In Mr. Battista's Life Science class, we have a test scheduled for Friday the 17th. Students should be reviewing their virus and bacteria notes over the weekend. We will finish the chapter Monday/Tuesday and review on Wednesday/Thursday. Students will receive a study guide on Monday that they should be review each night.
Ms. Dunham's Reading Class
In Mrs. Dunham's Reading class, we will be finishing presenting projects for the Create Your Own Dystopia. For each presentation, students will be taking small student-created quizzes to assure that they are paying proper attention to their peers. In addition, we will be doing some writing/Kahooting related to being thankful as that is what Thanksgiving is all about!

If students haven't finished their book, if they could finish it over the Thanksgiving break it would be helpful. Students will be taking their Whooo's Reading and STAR Assessment when they return. Students who show growth or remain "in the green" on the STAR will receive 5 points of extra credit! Also, students who read more than one book during this month will also receive an extra credit voucher as well and PACK cash.

If you are interested in ordering Scholastic for November, it is due November 30th. Students will be taking catalogs home, if they so choose. There is a lot of good books this month in the Teen Edition--including John Green!
