Time is FLYING!

Not that anyone is counting but how many days are left?  (that would be 7)

Blocks 3, 4, and 5:  I am truthfully so proud of the work you did on the Rain Forest products!  You really embraced the task and did such great things!  Now, go do that in the real world-you are ready!  We have begun reading a play called “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” about the survivors of the Terezin concentration camp.

Block 6 and 7:  Yes, it is time!  We will begin the Hunger Games Presentations TOMORROW!  You will have 20 minutes at the start of class for last minute touch up and “final looks”.  We will go in order of the Districts.

Canada is getting a reputation of being a team that is rich in GOLD during Olympics.  Not just for athletics but for character!  GO CANADA!
