This is last week’s news below.
6th grade- We are finishing up our Unit 2 and will be having a test within the next two weeks. At this time we are learning how to tell time in Spanish. They should be reviewing their vocabulary and practicing telling time. They will get a review sheet for the final exam and we will also be reviewing some in class.
7th grade- We are finishing up our Unit on the Family and will have a test within the next two weeks. We will have a vocabulary quiz this week and a quiz on the verb “tener”. They will be getting a review package for their final exam soon and we will also review in class.
8th grade- We finished our Unit on travel and will have a test within the next two weeks. They were given the last group of vocabulary words and last two verbs in our Spanish class. Some of us had a tearful moment thinking about the end of SMS Spanish class. We’ve had some very special times together. The final exam will be cumulative and they will receive a review package soon!
Math- Mrs. Koehler
NOTICE: Please note that the last Math Lab will be on Monday, 5/18. Please mark your calendars!
All of the math classes will be given an exam review/study packet by Thursday, 5/14.
Please make sure your student’s journal is up-to-date because they will be collected soon for grading which will account for a quiz grade. I will be starting with 8th grade on Monday, 5/11.
6th Grade: 6-T took the Chapter 12 conversion/measurement test on Friday, but 6-K was postponed until Monday, 5/11. Some students wanted a little more practice and review. The remaining days will be spent on Geometry. The students will not be tested on this material, however, they will be responsible for knowing it on the final exam.
7th Grade: We finally mastered Chapter 9! The students have been working very hard! We have started Chapter 13 on operations with polynomials. I wanted to introduce the students to this as a preview for Algebra 1. There will not be any more graded assessments (except the journal), but the students will be responsible for the Chapter 13 material covered on the final exam.
Congratulations to the Class of 2015 for a magnificent performance!
Advanced Algebra (HS) – The Chapter 10 test (Lessons 4 – 6) was postponed until Monday, 5/11.

There are still a few more teaching days left and we will be learning about the quadratic equation and solving radicals. There will be no more assessments (except the journal), but the students will be responsible for the new material on the final exam.
