Week of October 28

Math Games 2019
7th grade retreat

Hello middle school students and families:

  • Ms. Rzegocki and I very much enjoyed working with the 7th graders on their field trip to the Center for Wooden Boats. The students had a supportive and positive attitude from start to finish, even when they were waiting for the bus in the driving rain. Great work, 7th graders!
  • Thank you to the students who participated in this year’s Math Games at Seattle Prep.
  • Conferences begin on Monday, October 28, at 12:00. I look forward to seeing many of you there. If you still need to schedule a conference with me, there are still times available on Friday, November 8: sign up here
  • There is a late (9:00 AM) start on Tuesday, October 29.
  • 7th and 8th graders will begin working on their inquiry projects this week.
