Homework is a crucial part of Global History and Geography 9 and 10. Students have materials in their notebooks and teacher-made booklets which should be reviewed on a nightly basis. Most students have already written an essay and will be having their first major test soon. The five week marking period ends on Friday, October 6. Ninth grade students are high school students and the grades they earn this month will be part of the transcript that colleges will be looking at three years.

Students should start keeping a folder or large envelope for special recognition they receive in the next four years for participation in extra-curricular activities at school and outside of school. File away any certificates and awards received from any institution or organization.

OPEN HOUSE NIGHT at the Junior High is on Thursday, October 12 at 6:30 P.M. The teachers are hopeful that the parents of all their students will be able to attend.

Just a reminder..... all students have to pass the Regents they will take at the end of 10th grade in order to graduate.
