Welcome back to all my students.
I hope you had a great summer. Now we start a new year. This year we will be looking at several things. We start with the Presidential Election. We will learn how the Electoral college works. We will introduce the candidates for election. This year is a presidential election. We will also run a Mock election. But more on this later. Next week will also take a look at the 15th Anniversary of 9/11. This year we will also learn more about coding and Lego robotics.
Some things you should know:
Time is precious. When I enter the quicker you get quiet and get ready for class, the more we learn., the more we get done.
Respect everyone. You may have a reason and a right to be angry but you also have a responsibility to respect everyone.
Respect the equipment. Safe and appropriate site at all times.
Be gentle with the equipment. This equipment is very delicate and breaks easily. Handle it with care.
Stay in your assigned area.
If you are a last period class we do word puzzles at dismissal while we wait for our busses.I insist all students are engaged at the dismissal table.
