1. You will still be doing your weekly assignments ("60 Minutes," "The Amazing Race," "The Pacific"). You can post your answers to tonight's shows here.
2. Read up to page 57 in "To America" -- in other words, the first 4 chapters.
3. Vocabulary Sentences -- I will post the words for those of you not here on Friday (Randy, Katherine) in a separate posting. You will need to post sentences, by Thursday night, as usual, along with the parts of speech -- just like last week.
4. Keep in mind the events that are going to occur right after you return from break. The Thursday you return is the Honor Role trip. I encourage everyone to come. You should never pass up a chance to visit a college (or play laser tag!) Permission slips were given out on Friday but if you didn't get one, you need to get it immediately on Wednesday because we are leaving at 7am on Thursday and you cannot go without a permission slip. There is a limit to how many kids can go, so if you want to go, remember to bring in your permission slip (or if you weren't in school/didn't get one, let me know that you want to go). It's going to be on a first-come, first-serve basis. On the Friday we get back, we have our trip to the Global Kids Annual Youth Conference (yes, the same as zoo day). If you have a deep desire to go to the zoo, go during break. I don't want to hear complaining. The zoo is nice but the the seminar we are attending is more important. It is required that you go to the seminar. If you have a reason that you can't go, please let me know. I think that's about all. Have a nice break!
