Aloha! We're now in the second quarter, nearing the end of the first semester. Come to class ready to make the most of our time!

Remember: Our goal is to pass tests - everything we do is geared toward this, and to succeed we need to practice the skills you learn in class until they become automatic! Imitate and master the techniques you learn in class before making up your own!

Make sure you:
  • bring your tablet, 2 pens and 2 pencils and sharpener and write your homework in your planner everyday,
  • show your planner, classwork and homework to your parents each evening,
  • study what you learned for the next classes' quiz (25% of your grade), and
  • turn in your portfolio with all your activities, homework, quizzes and multiplication tables when each unit is completed (25% of your grade).
  • have your Assessment Test (50% of your grade) grade forms and Weekly Homework bookmark signed and turned in
