Math Creativity Projects are due Wednesday!


Hopefully you have seen your student working hard on their creativity project for math class.  Last Tuesday students were charged with doing something creative to show off any topic we have covered in class this year.  Here are their options:


I am so excited to see what your student shares this week in class.  These projects are due Wednesday.  The rubric is on the back of the page shown above.  You can ask your student to check it out.

Please don’t hesitate to ask should you have any questions about the assignment.


Dr. Lowe is on the ROOF!

Because our York Academy students met their reading goal Dr. Lowe is spending the night on the ROOF OF THE SCHOOL!  Today the fire truck came and hoisted him right up there.  For all of the skeptics out there, he REALLY IS SLEEPING on the roof!!  Here are some photos of today’s excitement!

M.A.P. assessments

We are tackling the last of our MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessments for the year! This week students will participate in the assessments for reading and for math. We are so excited to see the growth the students will show!

Textbook Due Dates


Students will need to bring in their US history textbooks on Tuesday, May 31st.  I will be collecting them and using them in the classroom as needed for the rest of the year.  Please make sure that the textbook is in school that day, all papers are out of the book, and all covers are removed.  Thank you!

Where in the world are Mrs. Alvarnaz and Ms. Chevalier?

Mrs. Alvarnaz and Ms. Chevalier are leaving for a VERY exciting trip this afternoon! We will be out of the classroom from Wednesday afternoon through Friday this week. We will be posting pictures and/or videos on this blog daily once we leave so students can guess where we might be! If you want to make a guess, just post a comment under our posts that have a clue. Our first clue will be posted tonight! We’ll let you know if you’re right or not, and we’ll see you Monday :-).


Uso del verbo ir (to go) en presente y los adjetivos demostrativos.


As we continue to get introduced to more cultural aspects from Guatemala and shopping scenarios, using statements with the verb to go “ir” in present tense and demonstrative adjectives were the focal grammar themes during this week in the Spanish class. Attached a couple of videos where these themes can be reviewed. —>

Buen fin de semana.
