Happy Friday, everyone!  We finished our first reading and writing workshop units today, and I hope that everyone is feeling inspired and ready to really make a difference with their words!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Homework: 
1) Math: none, unless you have any quizzes you got back with low scores (remember that even a 2/3 is a 66%, which would be a D+, so keep that in mind as you’re trying to put forth your best work!)  Also remember that I give full points back for redone math quizzes!!
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!! Please see the breakdown of what we do with reading logs below:

*5 days of signed reading = 5/5 points in SIS + 1 Ken Garff ticket (to win a bike, iPod shuffle, or scooter)
*7 days of signed reading = 7/5 points on SIS + 2 Ken Garff tickets
*less than 5 signed days: i.e. 3/5 days signed of reading = 3/5 points in SIS & 0 Ken Garff tickets
*NO days signed = lunch detention each day until the planner is signed.

Upcoming Events:

*Sep. 25: Boxtops due
*Sep. 28: Boxtop Dress-down day
*October 1: Due date for the “Make Your Mark Bookmark Contest.”  You can win $1,000 if you enter, so be sure to check it out!  http://www.uesp.org/bookmark

Do or do not, there is no try.
