Hey, there!  Wondering what all those acronyms mean?

You have been earning 2-4 points on your homeworks. You can look up your progress in the green folder by the homework board  ... use your student number to find out what you have and have not gotten graded.  Please bring anything you think might be a mistake to Ms. Levy's attention.

We will practice this week with writing evidence-based explanations, and you will have the opportunity to re-write your Violet Leaf Observation and get the entire packet back to Ms.Levy by Friday at 2:15.

Get ready for the 7th Annual Lake Wallace Cleanup!

Mark your calendars for the morning of Saturday, September 24, put on your grubbiest clothes and get ready to get dirty!

Ecomentors, in conjunction with UMass' Mass Impact 2016, will be conducting the cleanup inspired by the Connecticut River Watershed Councils' Source-to-Sea Cleanup.  You'll be part of a cast of thousands up and down the Connecticut River putting in time, muscle-power and smiles to making the world a better place, one DD cup at a time!

Meet at the picnic tables by the lake on Foley Field at 8am, don some gloves (and maybe waders) and pick your mission.  We'll be doing trash pickup along (and in) the edges of the lake, as well as trail maintenance along the loop trail.

CRWC is also holding a photo contest, so selfie-away ... the more mud the better!

Hard Work, Real Fun, True Impact! (CRWC)
