This year’s Dickerson Dash 5K will be held Friday, March 13, at 7:45 pm.

This year’s theme is Zombie Run.  Runners can expect to be splashed with red color powder along the race and can even purchase red color packets to throw on themselves or friends.  Watch out!  There may be some zombie sightings along the race course too!  Community sponsors will have tents set up on campus and may have swag and coupons to pick up.  Participants may choose to dress as a human or a zombie!

(The color powders are high quality and safe.  All FDA food grade and biodegradable ingredients are used. The powders are certified cosmetics in Europe (safe for skin), certified non-dust explosive in the USA and Europe, and safe for the environment.)

Cereal Box Performance Task

Students and Parents,

Next week, we will be completing a Performance Task over volume and surface area of rectangular prisms. Students will need a cereal box to complete the project. Once you acquire a cereal box, you may send it in for me to keep in my classroom until the project start date. You are more than welcome to send in more than one cereal box to provide for students who do not have one. We will begin the project next Friday, February 7.

Classroom Wish List

EXCITING NEWS!!!!! If your child has not made you aware already, we now have a classroom filled with whiteboards from wall to wall! Almost a 360 degree classroom of whiteboards!

Many of you have requested a wish list and it is finally here! I would love to use the whiteboards around my room on a daily basis, but there are necessary supplies needed to make it happen. Please do not feel obligated because I understand how much you already spend on school supplies. However, if you feel led, here is my Amazon Wish List: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/39S13EHVI39MZ?ref_=wl_share

Please feel free to have it delivered to the school so students don’t have to carry it. I believe you can add a note to the shipping label with my name so those in the office know who to deliver it to.

Thank you so much!

Online Homework Policy Change

In seventh grade, students will still be assigned online homework on a weekly basis. However, seventh grade teachers will not accept online homework submissions past the due date. Therefore, my online homework policy changes for the 3rd and 4th nine weeks to prepare students for seventh grade. I will accept late work submissions. However, the highest grade I can provide past the due date is a 50%.
