Mrs. Hawk
We are five weeks out from the end of the school year.  This is a time when students can be tempted to neglect the good habits they have built over the year.  We have been talking about finishing strong and not giving up in this final stretch.  They are working on being Attentive, Kind, Responsible and giving their Best Effort.  Please help me to maintain high expectations of our students in these areas. 
Here are some things you can do
- Help students complete activities weekly
- Help students complete research questions and visuals (they present in two weeks)

This week's activities 
The materials for your student's activities can be found on Google Classroom through their Google account.
