Well, we made it 8th grade! This is the last week of the course. You will finish the career unit assessing your knowledge of what you learned throughout the past few weeks. Don’t forget to finish the Unit Wrap up assignment! Thank you for a great semester together. I wish we could have spent the full 90 days together, but the short time we had January through March was very rewarding for me and I am glad for the time we had in class. Have a great summer and good luck next year in 9th grade!
