Students are bringing home the information sheet and the permission slip for our class field trip to see, "WONDER," at the AMC Theaters at Victoria Gardens on Tuesday, November 28th.  PLEASE read through both the information sheet and fill out the permission slip COMPLETELY! Donations of $10 ($7.09 for the movie ticket and $3.00 for bus transportation) are being requested.  Please submit the completed permission slip and donation to Mrs. Burkhard in the Summit Office by Monday, November 6th. THIS IS A DEADLINE that MUST be adhered to. I will have to purchase tickets/swap out passes and prior to Thanksgiving.  Please NOTE that this is NOT a grade level field trip, it's just my class and Mrs. Kvalheim's class that are going. You may contact me at 909-899-1704 or sandra_calonge@etiwanda.org for any questions regarding the trip. 

FAMILY LIFE CONSENT FORM: The form was sent home with students this week. This year's consent form is different due to State legislation, it is an OPT-OUT ONLY form.

The OPT OUT form is due by Friday, December 1st. Your student will be included in the program/instruction if this form is NOT returned.

GRADES have been updated to include Friday's chapter 5 Math Quiz and the work completed for the week of October 2nd. The first trimester is nearing its end and students must make every effort to finish their assignments to the best of their abilities, turn things in with their names, and study/prepare for the upcoming quizzes and tests in  math and science.  

Math: 
We will finish Chapter 5 and take the test before the end of the trimester. There will NOT be time for students to request to retest. It is imperative that students review the quiz that will be handed back tomorrow, study each night, and ask for help when needed.  The students will also be turning in the notes for chapter 5 when they take the test. 

Science:
Students will be taking the Section 4-2 quiz on Thursday, 10/12, with their foldable notes. This will also be turned in for grades.  We will also be completing the last section before taking the chapter test by the end of the trimester. Students will be using their notes for the test for all three sections of the chapter. The students' Solar Oven Reports are slowly being graded and will be included in the trimester grade.

Please feel free to contact me regarding your child's progress at sandra_calonge@etiwanda.org.

Due to two field trips on Thursday, September 28th, I'm going to have to reschedule our Solar Cooker S'mores due date to Friday, September 29th. I apologize for not notifying you yesterday. I was busy with "mom" duties for my younger son at the high school for band and the EHS Homecoming as a chaperone and didn't get home til very late. Your student may still bring their project in on Thursday, we'll just be hoping for NO winds and full attendance on Friday, 9/29. 
Sincere Apologies,

Mrs. Calonge

Tomorrow in math-we will be doing a "scavenger hunt" activity that uses a QR scanner on the students' phones....It is NOT required, and most apps are free and can be downloaded with minimal memory usage.  We don't use phones very often in class, and it's a FUN way to review the fractions lessons we've done before moving on to the next few lessons to finish up the chapter.  Just wanted to give you a heads up!!
