We are in the final stretch of our Holiday Family service project. We have collected 1793.38 so far and all of our fundraising ends next Monday, 12/15. The kids have done an extraordinary job and they have stated that they are not finished yet; they plan to make one final push during this last week.
We are going to Ronnie's Theater on December 19 for the showing of Interstellar. We would love to have chaperons on this trip but...chaperons would have to pay the $6.00 entrance fee on this one. The field trip form link is in the previous blog post (scroll down). Deadline for permission slips is this Friday.
Grades close next Friday, December 19. These grades are the permanent, semester grades. We have been encouraging all of the kids to check their grades and get in any missing work. We are here before and after school everyday until next Friday.
Next Tuesday, 12/16, is Pitch Day for 20% Time projects. Kids will "pitch" their project ideas to a committee of educators in order to get feedback about their project idea and process. Some of the committee members are Dr. Riss, Dr. Simpson, Dr. Smith, Dr. McGee, Dr. Gilb, Dr. Roberts, Jill Right and Tim Brown.
