Dear Parents,

Every night your son or daughter should spend 10 minutes doing a STUDY SMART activity. This week we are beginning CH 13 on the Civil Rights Movement in America (also WEEK 20 Studies Weekly.) For example, today your child was assigned 8 terms from p. 404-408 and he or she should begin studying those terms just a few minutes each day.

Written assignments are a sign that your son or daughter is finishing a CLASSWORK assignment because they need additional time, has been ABSENT and has make-up work, or has a PROJECT due over a period of time.

Thank you,

Michelle Caiola
