April 19, 2018: Announcement: After the Hawk Walk tomorrow, Miss Mello and I would like to show the movie Angels in the Outfield. It is rated PG due to language in one of the baseball game scenes. If your child is not permitted to watch the movie, please let us know. Thank you!
Please consider donating a box of tissues or clorox wipes! We could use some more before the end of the year (8 weeks, but who's counting?!)
Along with sixth and eighth grades, we will be attending a performance of Notre Dame High School's spring musical, Cinderella this Wednesday. We will have snack before we leave and lunch when we return. We ask that you pack a lunch on Wednesday. Please send in permission forms!
Friday is our 10th Annual Hawk Walk!! It will be a great day!! Please pack a lunch, since we now have a full day and there will be no hot lunch served. We'll be watching a movie in the afternoon, title to be determined!
Shirts will be sent home later this week and should be worn on Friday for those students who sent letters to enough family and friends (or who reached the fundraising minimum).
Permission forms for the Iron Pigs class trip on May 9 were sent home last week. Please return ASAP.
Please see the communication folder regarding the newly scheduled date for the 7th-8th grade dance. The new date is Friday, May 11, 2018.

We will continue to work on using charts to solve word problems involving mixtures and work. There will be a take-home test on this material. I encourage students to work together and do their very best work.
Most students did well on the quiz on linear functions, graphs, intercepts and slope. We will be finishing the chapter with learning to recognize slope-intercept format, writing equations from graphs, and word problems.
The quiz on fractions, decimals and percents went very well! This week we'll be finding the percent of a number, as well as finding the base and missing percent. We'll wrap up the chapter with some practical applications of percent: discount and tax.
** In an effort to make students more accountable for their homework, some quizzes will be open notebook homework quizzes. I will reference a homework problem by page number and problem number, and students will open their notebook to the homework section and copy the problem, work, and answer. We will have already checked the homework and it is up to the student to bring any concerns to class. Homework quizzes should be easy 100%!!**
1. Show respect for each other, our school, each other's property.
2. Be prepared with supplies, homework, and a positive attitude!
3. Pencils, pencils, pencils for math! I will not grade work done in pen. Save the pen for religion and other classes.
St. Jane Frances de Chantal Pray for Us!
