Week of September 6th, 2011

Welcome back from the three day weekend!

Here's what's going on this week:

-Students will be given a retake States & Capitals Test on Friday, September 9th. Please practice at home and come prepared!

-Tomorrow is the Digestive System Quiz. Students will be expected to be able to label the parts of the Digestive System and know basic facts about each of the organs involved: Esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, pancreas, gall bladder, liver.

-Students are beginning our new and final selection in the theme "Nature's Fury" called "Volcanoes". The new spelling and vocabulary words have been posted at the left of the blog.

-ITBS (Iowa) Testing begins September 19th and goes through the 30th. Please get your brains ready by going to bed early and having a healthy breakfast!

-Progress Reports will be distributed next week.

-We are going to the L.A. County Fair on September 30th to reward ourselves for doing well on the ITBS! So let's stay focused and show everyone just how smart St. Raphael students are!
