In Religion, we are going to begin to learn about the Sacraments at the Service of Communion. We will discuss the Sacraments of Matrimony and Holy Orders.  We will also learn about the lives of Hannah, Eli, and Samuel. So far in Health, we have learned about the Health Triangle, the Decision Making Process, and Nutrition. Next, we will discuss Tobacco.  We will learn about the negative effects of Tobacco use and learn the necessary skills we need to say "No."  

We will be moving on to Chapter 14 in Mathematics, which focuses on Geometry.  We will still be using the ConnectEd website for homework assignments. If for some reason they have trouble using or navigating the site, the assignments can be found in the Useful Links section of this class page. If you have any questions, please ask!  

Science will extend beyond our knowledge of plants to that of Ecosystems.  We will talk about the various Biomes found in the world, and about how each plant and animals works within each system.  In addition, we will learn about Food and Energy Chains as well as Food Webs. We will be completing an Ecosystem WebQuest, in which we create our own Ecosystems.  The PowerPoint notes for this chapter can be found in the Useful Links on this page.
