Welcome back,
We begin another school year with many changes the largest one being we are now going to a four day school week. This means that the days we are here, Tuesday through Friday will be longer. 
The Junior High students will see some changes in my class. We will be using the McDougall Littel Math books more as well as learning more Mental Math and ways to adapt our math lessons to our every day life. Remember, in real life all math is word problems!
We will again be writing an essay every week to improve our writing skills. We will focus on the 6 Trait Writing program to sharpen each individual writing skill.
In Science we will again be working in teams but we are excited to have Foss Science Kits that will make it more fun as well as challenging.
In Social Studies we will take a closer look at History and Government and how Economics fits into the picture.

I look forward to this year and will keep you all posted on our progress.
All the best,
Mr. T.
