The Weekend is here!

Happy Weekend! We made it! I hope your weekend is filled with so much [awesome]

Two more weeks left and then I get to sit around and twiddle my thumbs - I mean - plan the next several months of your lives!

Mwa haa haaa...

Career Missions: 

Botanist: Let's shop for new plants! Let's figure out how to create a mini greenhouse. I need you to research composting and growing tomatoes.

Tech Wizards: Let's research videos on www.pbslearningmedia.org - they need to be both compelling and relevant. I will likely approve any video from this website. It's fantastic!

Keeper of the Scrolls: Keep scouting ahead and read Chapter 6-7 of The Phantom Tollboth. Continue to read and correct Mr. Robles' manuscript, The King of Nothing. There is not deadline for these two assignments! Looking forward, I would like my Keeper to have her own manuscript ready for Scholastic's book publishing contest in the Spring.

Minister of the Faith: Your mission is to research Thomas Merton.

Class Ambassador: We need you to analyze a presidential or any political speech, real or a Hollywood speech. I want something moving and stirring and poignant that we can learn from and emulate.

The Rear Guard: We need to look at local community organizations and figure out how they are impacting the area. Eventually, I would like them to visit us and present in class what their mission is and how we can help.
