7th GRADE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
Below are a few tips to help you prepare for 7th grade:
1. It is VERY strongly recommended that all 7th grade students purchase their own TI-84 Series calculator to use. This calculator will serve them through high school and beyond.
2. Check out the 7-1 Weebly to see what the teachers are like and what the homework load looks like.
3. Buy some zebra-patterned clothes because that's the team you'll be on next year!

EOG TESTING WINDOW
Please be vigilant with student attendance on these days. Missing school during the testing window can cause major disruptions to the student’s schedule and for the testing coordinator. Also, please make sure the students come to school prepared and ready for testing. We’ll continue to send out updates and tips for the testing “season.”
We are currently begging parents to sign up and help out with EOG test proctoring. If you are able to give of your time, please go to our online sign up: http://bit.ly/SMSproctor15. Thanks in advance to those of you that are willing and able to give us help! It is SO appreciated!

Students have the opportunity to rework or retake assessments that score a 76% or lower (for MOST classes). If an assessment qualifies, a "reworks sheet" will be stapled to the paper and will have an expiration date stamped on it. The "reworks sheet" MUST be completed IN FULL by the expiration date. Reworks MUST be completed within 5 school days.
