Wednesday/Thursday- One Percent Day/ Act Your Age Day
Water Lab. You probably did it in 9th grade Biology, but it's a fun lab and a good review of the properties of water.
Friday- Spirit Day- Wear Your Colors. If you're in class, we'll review Chapters 1-3 with games and candy.
There will be no grade corrections for test corrections on the Unit Test: 1. It's almost all review material.
2. It's the last week of the quarter. 3. College professors will laugh at you when you ask to get points for doing test corrections. DO THEM because you need to know what you missed and why you missed it. Your college professor won't care.
If you're one of those poor souls who didn't put your name on your review packet and left it in Room 125, it's over there --> under the gold box. Who's going to baby you like this when you go to college?

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
