In Science we are continuing to build on our knowledge of Air & Aerodynamics. Student videos based on their Air experiments should be posted to the 63/64 youtube account no later than Thursday before school

Any students who are unfamiliar with posting videos to Youtube should seek help on Wednesday. 
We will be starting several flight related projects in the coming days. Students will be investigating wing design, material, and construction methods in order to build and test a wing of their own design and manufacturing.

In Math we will be continuing to interpret and work with graphs and graphic information. There will be a short Math quiz on Friday. Last weeks quiz was cancelled because of the PAT. Topics for the quiz will include: algebra, graphs, integers, and some computation. 

We hope you have a great week!
