Washington, D.C./New York City 2019

Ms. Hsu and Ms. Coffman Fujiwara are organizing a trip to Washington, D.C. and New York City for June 2019, through EF Explore America.  Information forms went out to all students in Science class yesterday and today.  There is a competition between ALL 7th grade Science classes for a pizza party for the most RSVPs received by end of the day on Monday.  You do not have to RSVP that you are coming, you just need to return the form to Ms. Coffman Fujiwara.  Currently, for 7C, 1st period is in the lead!  We hope to see you all at the Interest Meeting on Tuesday evening at 6pm in the Cafeteria.

Honor Roll Celebration

Thank you to the parents who graciously donated money for doughnuts, volunteered to order and pick up the doughnuts, and who are helping serve our Honor Roll Student Scholars on Monday morning during Team Time.  We really appreciate your generosity!

English week of 2/9

We will continue our stations for poetry and drama.

The Achieve 3000 alternative assignment. is an option for the rest of the year. Students may use this if they are having trouble signing in or would like more options for articles.

Station work will be collected on 2/9 where I will be looking to check for late work (2 original poems and 2 poetry responses) as well as the 3 original poems and 3 poetry responses that were assigned on 1/30. If students need more time they will be able to follow the link for instructions here: Station work Instructions

Homework:

Achieve 3000 due 2/11
Original poems (3) & Poetry Response (3) 2/9 (if not completed in class)

Honor Roll Celebration for Cycle 3

We would like to celebrate our student scholars who earned Honor Roll for the 3rd cycle on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5th during Team Time.  Due to the donations from cycle 1 that were remaining, and the generous donation from Chick-fil-A for cycle 2, we have $80 so far.  We are open to any ideas, but the doughnuts seemed to work well the first time.  We would only need to collect about $20 additional to cover the doughnuts and bottled water.  We also need two parent volunteers to work the table.  Please e-mail kcoffma1@houstonisd.org if you are able to help make this celebration possible.
