This week is a very busy week. We have lots of work to do before our next big assessment. Students completed their assessment last week and showed lots of improvement. I am really excited to see what they have mastered. We still need some more remediation in some things, so we are working on that this week. Our summative test will be on October 17, 2014. We will be working in class with remediation. the students can also go back and replay online games and complete online activities from their Google Classroom assignments. Repetition and practice are important. Please encourage them to do this.
