Welcome to Mr. Hartung’s update - September 24, 2018
Hard to believe but we are already up against Fall Break. This week in our classroom we will:
7th Grade - Rome vocabulary review and Digital Citizenship. On Friday my students took part in an engineering challenge building aqueduct that would transport water (well, ping pong balls) from the mountains to their cities.
8th Grade - A closer look at the details surrounding British actions (Tea Act, Sugar Act, Stamp Act, etc) and Colonial reactions (Boston Tea Party, Sons of Liberty, etc) in the period between the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War.
The first grading period has closed and progress reports will be mailed out soon. Many of my students are learning the hard way that turning in one’s assignments and getting good grades are directly linked together. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s grade please let me know so we can discuss.
