Happy Spring Break, all! Hope that you are enjoying a few days off from seeing me and your other teachers.

You will receive a new calendar for planning this week for next month, so keep up with it. You’ll always know what we will be doing. I’ll post it on this site too!
Attached is the new KBAR (for all classes) and the Washington State History (for Honors Core). I’ll explain both assignments on Monday for you all.
Question for the week: Now that you’ve been in middle school for half of a year, what the best part of it? What’s the worst part?
Rough day today in Honors Core, huh? I’m quite perturbed that we can’t handle playing a simple game and that I can’t share stories with you any longer. Sounds like next semester is going to be quite boring in Honors Core. Oh well.
Attached is a list of terms that you should be able to identify and define. Know that this is not the only terms, these are just some of the terms you should know.
