Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent teacher conferences are Thursday and Friday.  If you can't remember your conference time, you can contact the office.  They will have a copy of my schedule.  I look forward to meeting with all of you soon to discuss your child's progress.

OPTIONAL SPRING BREAK PACKET

YOUR CHILD WILL BRING HOME ON WEDNESDAY AN OPTIONAL SPRING BREAK PACKET.  IF HE/SHE COMPLETES IT, HE/SHE WILL GET A NO HOMEWORK COUPON.  I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A WONDERFUL SPRING BREAK!

Magnetic Device Challenge

Students worked in partners or groups of three to design a magnetic device.  They learned about how to design and modify a prototype, test their design, and make improvements.  Here are their projects.
