"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!" ~ Audrey Hepburn

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please continue to check your child's planner DAILY and Aspire gradebook WEEKLY. Students are expected to be prepared and put forth their best effort in classroom work. Students are required to complete any unfinished classroom work as homework. Homework is always due the next school day and any late work or incomplete assignments will not receive a full credit. 

  • Students who are absent are responsible to make up any missing assignments as stated in the Disclosure Statement.
  • Students have been given MULTIPLE opportunities to make up their work during math time on a weekly basis and they are also allowed to RETAKE quizzes/tests during lunchtime and any day after school except Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
  • In addition, students also have opportunities to make up their work monthly during Aguilas of Excellence, to improve their grade.

Please review above expectations with your child and continue encouraging them to be PROACTIVE and RESPONSIBLE, and to become a better learner.

We are starting a new science unit on Magnetism. This week students will investigate and compare the behavior of magnetism using magnets, and understand how magnets both attract and repel other magnets.  Below is this week's vocabulary words on Magnetism LINC#1.
  1. magnetic field an area around a magnetic material
  2. magnetic force the force between magnetic poles, producing magnetization
  3. attract to cause to draw near or adhere (stick) by physical force
  4. repel force something similarly magnetized or charged, away from itself
