Speaker request for 7th grade

Posted by on Oct 28, 2013 in 7th - Ms. Szymanski, 7th GRADE, Front Page | 0 comments

We are beginning our unit on percents, markups, discounts, tips, sales tax etc. I am looking to see if there is anyone out there who deals with commission, or is in the restaurant business or in real estate, who can come in and talk to the classes and explain how percents deal with their jobs. I think it is interesting for them to hear that although a realtor might make a 7% commission on a house they sell, they don’t actually get all that money. Or how a waitress must give some of their tip to the busboy etc. It would be nice to have...

I just want to give a big thank you to all the parents and students who either worked on or came to support our Reeds Got talent show. Each year i think I am not going to do it anymore and then when it comes to the night of the show I am so proud of all the students. I laugh, cry and most of all am happy that I am able to give the kids an opportunity to experience the life in the theater. From my stage crew to talent, they all tell me how they didnt realize how much work it takes to put on a show. I think that is the great part of this all. I...

From Ms szymanski

Posted by on Aug 18, 2013 in 7th - Ms. Szymanski, 7th GRADE, 8th - Ms. Szymanski, 8th GRADE, Front Page | 0 comments

Welcome all. Schedules are still being worked on, and everyone is still getting used to being back to school. (me as well!). but this week we begin the work. Generally I give homework everyday but try not to on Fridays. They may have to finish something because they procrastinated in class a little. My assignments and lesson plans are planned ahead of time, but homework can change daily because of how fast or how slow each class picks up. It wil take me about a month to figure out the generally prior knowledge of the students I havent had...

Hello there I hope everyone is enjoying the last few weeks of summer. I look forward to the upcoming year which will be a bit of a transition as we move into the common core standards etc. I am very proud of my students last year, you did very well on CST’s, but testing is not everything, and more importantly I feel they are ready for the new year. As you buy things for your school year, I do have a few wish list items which are continous all year long. Ms John could also use the same items if you are one of her students. so here is the...
