Annnndddd we are back! As always, each month seems to fly by. December was filled with much fun, from field trips, to Christmas Spirit Week, to tests, to gift exchanges... (okay, maybe not the test part, but it was a fun month!) Here are a few pictures of the festivities! My publications class did a lot of work for Christmas Spirit Week, from designing posters and flyers to decorating a photo booth. I am very proud of them and their efforts!
Spike ball is still the favorite activity at recess!
Christmas Spirit Week
The year is flying by! It is so hard to believe we are entering into December--with only three weeks until Christmas break. There have been many new concepts learned over the past month, such as trigonometric ratios (Pre-Cal), indirect proofs (Geometry), imaginary numbers (Algebra 2), advanced forms of distribution and the FOIL method (Algebra 1), signed numbers (Pre-Algebra), and reducing fractions (Math 7). We can't forget our Rosetta Stone students and Publications staff, who have also been putting in a lot of effort. Publications, in particular, has been hard at work planning our Christmas Spirit week, as well as compiling yearbook pages!
Here are some random pictures for your viewing pleasure (courtesy of some camera-happy students)!
Better late than never! October has been a busy month for all. We are officially done with review and working on new concepts in all math classes! Fall Break was a fun reprieve, but we all have been working hard since returning to school. As always, my pictures are few and far between during math (I mean, who does fun things in math?! hahaha), but I tried to snag a few pictures along the way. Some of these pictures are actually from this week, as Spirit Week is too fun to miss!
Shawn helped kick off Spirit Week by dressing in camo!

Middle school spent part of their afternoon organizing their math binders!
The first month and a half of school has been busy in the mathematics room! We have been learning a variety of new topics, as most curricula are moving out of their review sections. While I haven't had the time to get pictures in my math classes, I am hoping to do a better job in October!
Publications, Foreign Language, and Study Halls have lent more time for pictures, so here is just a few images of the students keeping busy...one way or another!
