Lesson Plans for April 2-6, 2018

We will spend the week reviewing for the STAAR test as we did last week.  8th grade students will take the Math STAAR test on April 10, which gives us only 6 more instructional days for review.  7th advanced math students will take the Math STAAR on April 11.  Parents, please encourage your child to be attentive in class and complete all review activities and assignments.  Each student has been given a STAAR review booklet with foldables and notes to use while reviewing.  This notebook will go home with your child this Friday if you would like to look over it with your child.  THANK YOU!!!
