Students will have independent work for the next 8 school days.  Our classes won’t resume until 4/27/16 due to testing.  It is VERY important that students refer to the assignment sheet that I passed out (2 week assignment sheet 2016-1) so that they pace their work.  If they leave all assignments until when testing is over it will be nearly impossible to complete them.  Please feel free to email, text, or call if you have any questions about the assignments.
