Student Council News:

Throughout the month of February each advisory class is collecting change to help support Pennies for Patients. Please help out by sending some of that change lying around the house to support the cause. Thanks!

News from Ms. Wolff:

Greetings! I am happy to return to Field after my 6 week family leave! Adoption is a wonderful and challenging process and I was thankful to have the time to sort through many things that came along with our new legal family structure. I look forward to working with students in the classroom with their next "My Life Plan" milestones and continuing my small "student success" groups. I will also begin working on specialist choice request process for next year. I will keep you all updated as important dates and deadlines are confirmed. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about your students' academic progress or scheduling questions! Wendy

Winter conferences are being held on the evening of February 28 and the morning of March 1. We will be contacting families if we have particular concerns about your child's progress. If you have questions or concerns and would like to schedule a conference please contact one of the seventh grade teachers.

    Well today we started our unit on Redemption, and that means we are finally going to read A Christmas Carol. We started off with the life and times of Charles Dickens and Wednesday will learn about Victorian England and the Industrial Revolution. I hope to have us reading Stave One by Friday.

    Math - Mr. West

    Hello everybody. We are finishing up our study of arcs and sectors at the beginning of the week and then studying for the test on Filling and Wrapping. We will be taking the unit test on Friday. The students have been doing very well on this unit and I'm looking forward to seeing how they do on the test.
