I hope everyone had a restful weekend.  Monday and Tuesday are the Math Milestones for 7th grade.  Please be sure to get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast, and bring your sharpened #2 pencils.

The 7th grade dance is Friday April 28th. Permission slips went home last week.  Be sure to turn those in to the PTSA mom’s  in front of the Cafeteria each morning.

APRIL 17 – 21

Milestone testing begins this week.  Please be in homeroom by 9:10. Students may use a calculator during some sections of the math test. Students  must provide their own calculators.  Students may use 4 function or scientific calculators.

April 10 – 14

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a spectacular Spring Break!  We are in the final few weeks of the school year, and we are running low on kleenex and hand santitizer.  Donations of these items would be greatly appreciated.  This week, Durham is kicking off the opening of Braves Baseball in the new Suntrust Park,  Students are encouraged to participate in fun activities each day.  Additionally, students are encouraged to bring in canned food items this week as Durham ‘teams’ up with the Braves in a canned food drive.

TUESDAY: Braves Trivia

WEDNESDAY:  Wall Art Day Competition

Thursday:  Throwback Photos of fun at Turner Field

Friday:  Wear your BRAVES Gear.

Milestone Testing is coming up 4/19, 4/20, 4/24 and 4/25.  Students should be in homeroom by 9:10.  Please remember the the dress code will be in place which means no pajamas or house shoes. Blankets and pillows should also be left at home!  As rooms vary in temperature, it’s always a good idea to dress in layers or bring a sweatshirt in case the room is cold!  No electronic devices of any kind are allowed in the classroom during testing.  This includes phones, smart watches, tablets, and laptops. Students will be asked to turn any electronics off and the device must be stored in their locker.
