I will also provide some of the handouts and other important information that students and parents may need throughout the year.

Benchmark tests started today. Many finished but additional time will be needed on Tuesday. 
For AE and homework this week students are assigned IXL F.13-16 and L.5-7. This is not listed on the lesson plan. 
I will be adding IXL homework credit for H and K activities and two additional grades (a classwork grade and a novel quiz) before the end of the quarter. I am not sure if anything else will be added at this time. 
ENR students (2nd period) will have their collaborative project grade added as well!
Have a wonderful spring break!!
