Washington Map

I have beeng grading the Washington Maps this week and notice that there are still many students who have not completed it. I spoke with each of those students today in class, but perhaps you could check with your child this weekend to make sure that they remember to do it. I believe the next progress report day is May 5th, but I'd love to have all of the maps on my desk by early next week in preparation for that progress report. Thanks for your help!

Geology Guest Speaker!

Today we had a guest presentation on the geologic history of Washington by Richelle Rose, a UW trained geologist now working for King County. She also helped the students as they make observations about different rocks and minerals f0und in Washington State.

Maroon Book, WA Map, Paper Towel Tube

Hi Folks,

Just a quick note to check-in about a few things. First, since we are finished with the world history portion of the class, I am collecting the maroon History Alive books that were checked out to students. I have asked students to bring those by tomorrow (4/17). Second, the students have been working in class on a map of Washington--it's due tomorrow as well. Finally, next week we will be doing an art project and students will need a paper towel tube (or something else akin to it). Can you make sure to be prepared? Thanks...
