We will begin another week.  First let me remind all of you that there is no school on Friday.  It is a short week, so we need to work hard this week to get finished with everything.

This week, we are going to continue our work  with converting decimals, fractions, and percents.  We are going to also be looking at percents that are greater than 100% and less than 1%.  This may be a little more confusing for them.  We will continue to review all of the concepts that have been learned so far.

In social studies, we are going to continue our studies of Ancient Rome.  We are going to be beginning another DBQ.  It is "Citizenship:  Which is the better system, Athens or Rome?"  It is going to be more fun than the last one because the students will be choosing a side.  They will get to have  a debate.  It will also include writing a persuasive essay at the end.  This is good because that is what they are required to do on their writing assessment.

So all in all, let's work hard and getir' done!
