Hi Everybody!

Don't forget to bring your old cell phones and batteries to my room!

School Fundraiser - Cell Phone Recycling and Ink Jet Cartridge Fundraiser

We are into the second quarter already!  Can you believe it?!?  

Start it off right!  If you didn't get the grade you wanted for first quarter, think about what you didn't do... Then CHANGE IT

Work on improving those study habits.  Don't wait until Thursday to do your homework.  If you haven't figured it out yet, it's hard to catch up! 

With the holidays coming, remember that with that extra time, an independent science project (written up in report form) can raise your grade.  

Come see me for ideas!
