Homeroom Rewards

Congratulations to Mrs. Eye’s homeroom for a great start to CRCT testing!  Yesterday, 100% of our class earned points based on attendance, effort/strategies, and behavior.  Students completed water color paintings and got to play outside.

Today students made creations from pipe cleaners.  We had a variety of headbands, jewelry, animals, and glasses.  Please remind your child that he or she may bring $2 to school each day to purchase candy and drinks during our outside rewards time.  Students must earn all of their points to participate in outside rewards time each day.

I’m very proud of the 7th grade students.  Relax tonight and this weekend review for our upcoming Math, Science, and Social Studies CRCT next week.
