March Madness is Upon Us!
For the Month of March, my class will be participating in a March Madness SAT competition. Students will be placed in a bracket that looks like those to the right, and will compete against one another for the title of SAT Champion. Once students have dominated their own class, we will hold a "Final Three" match-up among all of my classes during lunch time. Please encourage your student to study their SAT terms in preparation for this competition.
Name Ceremony 2017
This year our class participated in a name ceremony, just as our main character Taro does in The Samurai Tale. We were lucky enough to have teacher and administrator involvement in our ceremony. Watch the video to the right to see more about our day.
