Daily Announcements-Tuesday

November 18, 2008

Today is Tuesday, November 18th, and it is an A day.

Good luck to our 8th grade students who are taking the Explore test today! We have a history of doing very well on this test, which is a predictor of success on the ACT test in high school. This test also indicates which courses are the best choice in high school based on the career interest inventory. Make us proud, 8th graders!

The 7th graders are looking forward to sharing their knowledge about native Americans next week during our Legends of our Land culminating project. The students learned about the geography of our land, researched different Indian tribes, experienced story-telling, and wrote their own legends as a group. They will perform in costume with their group on Thursday, November 20th from 12:00-1:00. After the performances, the students and their guests will sample recipes from the different tribes. We are looking forward to the day! Parents interested in helping may call 525-3236, and ask for Mrs. Jimerson (or e-mail ajimer@springfield.k12.il.us)
