Are You Living Wise?
We are approaching the final weeks of the third quarter already! In math we are exploring and using percents, and will be using algebra skills.
in science, students are exploring home water and energy use. Living Wise program kits are for families to use and share, provided by Southern California Edison and The Gas Company to help us conserve at home.
Remember, each day you should be prepared to learn! Bring a water bottle, pencil, paper, and your school materials (binder, journal, reading log and homework). Most of all, bring a great attitude!
Mrs. Fox will be focusing on three key subjects - Math, Earth Science, and Reading. We will be switching classes each day with Mr. Wilson. He is your primary teacher for Language Arts (writing) and Ancient History. Both Mrs. Fox and Mr. Wilson have a common goal of preparation for middle and high school. See us if you need anything to help you in your journey!
We are an AVID classroom. This stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, a program to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to choose his/her college and career. First off, we need to be ready - using your planner every day will help to keep you organized! This, and our binder/journal system, are required in our classes. You will be learning key reading, writing, questioning, and strategy tools to grow this school year.
