Weekly Schedule September 22nd – September 26th

This is our schedule for the week ending September 19th, 2008. It is important to remember that these schedules are not etched in stone. Our firm belief in adjusting our curriculum to meet the needs of students sometimes causes slight changes. It is important to note that ample time is given in class to complete most assignments. There are occasional projects, spanning a week or more, that will require students to work outside of class. There will be no more than one of these per month. If you have any questions, please contact me at extension 38.

Topic: Live Right, Grow Right: It's the Only Body You've Got - A catchy song introduces two teenage hosts, Damian and Alexandra. They talk to the audience in an entertaining way about all the rules of growing up; eating right, getting enough exercise and sleep, avoiding cigarettes and drugs, practicing good hygiene, recognizing mental distress and following safety regulations. Four other kids tell about their personal experiences with weight loss, smoking, a skating accident and depression. Among the problems discussed are anorexia, communicable diseases, peer pressure to drink or smoke, and the results of too much stress. Damian and Alexandra conduct true or false quizzes for audience participation and present a succinct set of rules for taking good care of “the only body you’ve got”. There will be a quiz.
Assignment: None

Shay's mom here.
As I was mentioning on Tuesday,
I'd like to initiate an essay contest for the 5th grade level students. The theme of the essay would be, "What a President from Arizona Means to Me."
The winner will receive a pizza party, compliments of Mohave County Supervisor Buster Johnson.
Essay contest to be held on the week before our General Election, deadline being October 28th.

Thanks,
Shawna Thornton
