    On Tuesday and Wednesday of next week all Field students will begin MCA testing. First up is the MCA reading test. Students will test on both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. After lunch regular classes will resume with the 7th grade having hours 1, 2, and 4 on Tuesday afternoon and hours 6 & 7 on Wednesday afternoon. There will be no BEST classes or Advisory on either testing day.

    We ask all families to speak to their children about the importance of doing your best on the test. We also recommend all students get enough rest next week and start their day with a healthy breakfast. Just a reminder, everyone may get FREE breakfast each day before school starts, testing or no testing.

    Think Spring!

    Math - Mr. West

    Hello everybody! This week we are reviewing the measures of center, mean, median and mode and then looking at how to manipulate these measures in a distribution. We will also spend time beginning to review for the MCA math test, which we will be taking the first week of May.

    Social Studies -- Ms. Odermatt

    Science - Mr. Boler

    We will be finishing up our unit on Human Body Systems this week with notes, activities, video clips, etc. on Disease, the Nervous system, and the Urinary system.

    Homework R4, Disease, will be given out on Monday and due back on Friday.

    The current plan is to have the Human Body Systems test on either April 18 or 19th. Students will be given a review guide on April 12th which they should use to help guide their review of notes, activities, past homework, and Quiz 1.
