Journal Scenes (95 picts) Are Now Available
Barracuda
Click on the picture above (it's Carrie) to go to the photo gallery which hosts scenes from your Florida Keys Trip Journals. No individual pictures this year -- the scenes were so many and so interesting that I have decided to only create a gallery of art scenes this year. If yours isn't listed, sorry... I ran out of energy. Each picture had to be individually scanned into the computer, cleaned up in Photoshop, cropped, and resized BEFORE it was uploaded. I spent the entire day doing it so.... enjoy.

Spring Break!
springbreak1

According to our Circle Discussions on Friday, most students plan to spend a significant portion of their Spring Break SLEEPING!

Well, it's a good thing to catch up on sleep.

Movies, shopping, and a bit of travel were also tops on the list of things going on during Spring Break.

Get lots of rest because after the break it's GO, GO, GO until we head South for the Florida Keys Trip! When we get back to school there are 3 weeks to go before we head to Big Pine Key.

Friday is the End of the 9 Weeks
Endof9wksFriday, March 30th is the end of the 3rd nine weeks grading period. All grades for this nine week marking period are now closed. You will receive a grade report Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully, electronic grade reports will be sent out via email on Wednesday.

This grade report will include the scores from your Balloon Popper project and Poster as well as the Physics Chapter 2 test and your "This I Believe" essay scores.

A total of 30 grades were collected for this nine weeks. Fortunately for many students, the Balloon Popper scores were amazingly HIGH --- which helped quite a bit, considering the scores on the last physics test..... (Check out the 7UP Club for high scores....)
