Important Reminders:

  • Students–Sign up for Stingray Success Enrichment by going to the Gamble Rogers homepage, clicking on the stingray in the upper left corner captioned “Sign up for Stingray Success Enrichment here,” and following the prompts. The sign-up window opens every Friday afternoon and closes every Tuesday afternoon.
  • During the fourth quarter, my Stingray, Maroon 3 and 4 blocks, and my Silver 3 block will be reading The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.  I have a class set of books, which DO NOT leave my room.  It is highly recommended that students own their own copy of the book to keep up with reading outside of class in the event of absences.
  • For the fourth quarter, in an effort to better prepare students for the expectations of high school, late work will not be accepted. 
  • The Incantation Interactive Notebook project for Silver 2 and Silver 4 is due Thursday, May 12th.
