    Hi 

    I hope everyone had a great two week Spring break considering our stay at home situation. You only have 6 weeks of school work left and I'm thrilled Mr. Shupe said in the Parent Letter email there still may be an 8th grade promotion ceremony depending upon how much our governor opens up California by the end of May/June 1. There is a box in front of the office door labeled "Flowers turn in worksheets..." for you to turn in all of your worksheets. I will be collecting work from the box every evening this week.

    I need you to turn in the following work:

    Is your name on every assignment?

    ISN Ch 22

    Lesson Game complete sentence answers

    Quiz Ch 22

    Gettysburg Address 10 answers
