Dear Parents,

The next few weeks your students will have over 200pts available to earn. This is very important considering the first few weeks they've only had around 60pts. Today we will be handing out a study guide for the Unit 4 test and tomorrow the students will play a Jeopardy review game (winners get bonus points). The study guide will be due Friday, the day of the test. On Monday the students will be expected to have their 1st Amendment Project completely finished. The 1st Amendment Project assigned last Monday (giving them 2 weeks to get it finished).

Also, I've just began working on my class website through the school. I will also begin updating my class blog at least weekly. I have downloadable handouts for the study guide and the project already up if your child forgets to bring them home. From the website just click on "class resources" then click on subpage "Unit 4."
