2 more Mondays…kinda sad really.

Block 1;  Our Districts have begun to present today.  District 5 did a great job and was so organized and transitions went so smoothly! Be sure to check your rubric carefully and you have fulfilled the elements of both the rubric and your task.  District 3 will share tomorrow!

Block 2,3,4, and 5;  Students continued work on the choice board.  Projects will be due on May 13th (yes, Friday the 13th).  Use your power of choice wisely and manage your time-you should be able to complete the tasks at school.  You may work on at home if there is an element you can’t do at school (the art especially).

Olympic shirts went home today.  Wear those next Monday for Opening Ceremonies!   (and wash frequently next week).
