Fun Run - $$ Due 
Please turn in all your donation this week.  Thanks to all that helped out, 
ran in the Fun Run, and donated. 

Math
We are starting the Geometry unit on Monday.  There is an extensive amount of 
vocabulary that needs to be memorized; therefore, all students created a 
vocabulary book.  This book should go back and forth from school to home each 
night.  Students should use it to complete their nightly homework.  In 
addition, I strongly recommend that parents help their students to review 
concepts each night.  Waiting until test time, will be WAY TOO MUCH vocabulary 
to memorize.  

Missions 
In social studies we will be starting our mission unit.  We already had an 
introduction to the unit with an interactive experience aboard the mission 
mobile.  We will not be taking a field trip to a mission this year, but I 
encourage everyone to visit a California mission so the students get a better 
understanding of what a mission looks like and what life on a mission is like.  
There are 21 missions down the coast of CA and some right in our backyard.  
Mission San Jose (located in Fremont) is very close and an easy, quick day 
trip.
