The students did a great job these past three days on the CoGat test. The Iowa test next week has longer test sections and will take up a larger portion of our morning. As a result, we won't have our regular homework schedule. Please use the extra time to complete the Book Project, which is due on September 30th.
Monday is our first Brainstorm Day of the year! Many of the teachers have purchased the materials for their activities with their own money. If you'd like to help offset the expense, please send in a $2 donation to the school. The donation will be used to reimburse teachers for the materials used during the fun activities.
The week following testing will be a three day week followed by another three day week. We will use one spelling list for the two, short weeks, so our next spelling test won't be until October 11th. I hope you have some fun or relaxing plans for the break.

My 8th grader is in a play at the Grand Theatre in Cartersville, GA Halloween weekend (Nov 1 & Nov 2). I'll be at the Friday and Saturday night performances. Perhaps your family would enjoy a night a the theater!
