• The following words will be on the second test. The test format will be a fill in the blank with a word bank. All classes will be tested on these words. Each day I will add that days vocabulary on this announcement until all 20 have been added. The test will be held April 16, 2024.


     Parents/Students: There will be a vocabulary check done on April 11, 2024. Each set of words should be dated as follows with the corresponding vocabulary and each set should be on its own page. The vocabulary check is a pass/fail grade. Students are given the opportunity to complete the vocabulary in class. If it is correct, it is an "A". If it is incorrect, it is an "F". Students are shown how to get to this page in case they miss a day and are responsible for getting the definitions they may have missed.
