Great job on the wax museum, everyone!  You all did a fantastic job, and thank you so much to all those parents who came by!
As we finished our brief study of WWII today, we experienced what’s called “Decision Alley” to ponder the decision to bomb Japan to end the war.  Students, be sure to share your thoughts with your parents, and parents, be sure to ask!
Also, we are still in need of donations/volunteers for our Valentine’s Day party on Thursday.  Thank you so much to everyone who has signed up already!  We are excited for the party tomorrow!  Students, remember that your Valentine’s boxes should be able to fit on your desk!  🙂

Homework: 
1) Math: Unit 7 Pretest! Students received this in class today, and they should do it on their own–they will receive only a participation grade–which will be used to determine what else they need to review for the unit test on Friday!   Also, redo all low-scoring quizzes and practice!  The unit 7 test is this Friday!
2) Read 20 minutes (and every single day if your reading log grade is a little low to bring that up!)
3) Missing work!


Items of Business: 
*Class Store: If you have any extra soda, candy, trinkets, jewelry, or toys that you would like to donate to class store, please send it with your child! We would like to do one more often to serve as a motivator for positive behavior!
*We would always welcome donations of gerbil food for our class pets!
