No homework has been assigned for tomorrow but it is HIGHLY recommended to go over the notes from their math binders and journals. We will continue with fractions tomorrow.

Students in 8A Post Intensive French class, created a list of 12 questions and assisted in creating the grading rubric for a French Interview project. This was assigned on December 14th with the hope that students would have the chance to interview a family member or family friend from a previous generation, over the holidays, about what life was like for them at your child's current age. In order to meet the minimum requirements, students only need to provide 3 French questions/answers from their interview., Please ask your child if they are done this project. I am allowing a second extension until Thursday, January 17th. Thank you for supporting your child with their learning and please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
