Wednesday, 3/22/17- B Day- Practice CMT

Practice CMT is tomorrow during Period 7. You will test with your homeroom with a few exceptions. You will be dismissed tomorrow from Practice CMT at the end of Period 1 (9:09 am). 

To my students:

I will be absent from school today. I am at a workshop learning about NGSS, the new science standards. I look forward to bringing new ideas back to our classroom! In my absence, please remember to be respectful, be cooperative, and use self-control.

Kindly, Mrs. Vigliotti
