Tuesday Was A Project In Itself…


Greek Latin Roots 3It has been a very busy Tuesday, but the students have been working really hard. Tomorrow, short Greek/Latin root word projects are due. From what has already been turned in, they are looking great! It is always interesting to see how all of the different students approach the same assignment. Individual creativity really pays off.

INFORMATION: Thursday is Halloween and also school picture day. The regular Halloween 2dress code is in effect for that day. Also, students are not to put unnatural colors in their hair or wear costumes of any kind.
