Christmas Countdown Begins…



Get ready, set, go! The countdown to Christmas has begun. With only 14 school days left and a lot to accomplish, it will be a very busy time. As you can see, it is snowing on the blog, which adds to the Christmas spirit. Here are some of the things that we will be doing in the next few weeks; Acuity Predictive B, summative assessment unit 4, summative assessment unit 5 (figurative language), HUSKIES: Behind the Books resources & bookmarks, finishing the project and delivering everything to the feeder schools. This is aonly a few things – there are lots more, so rest up and be ready to work every day.
