This year, the state of Texas provided your child with a login to look up their 8th grade STAAR Reading scores...the paper was passed out during PAW a few weeks ago. Please ask your child for the login information. My 7th & 8th grade Algebra students did fantastic on their EOC Test. My students averaged 91% "Masters Grade Level" (the old Commended) on the EOC!!! I am so proud of them :)
 
 As always, please remember we are partners in your child's education, so contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Home-stretch, we're in our last marking period of this school year, so make sure your child has turned in all their work!!!! 
  
I am so thankful you are viewing my teacherweb page, it shows you have a real interest in your child's education.  If you'd like to receive email notifications of upcoming tests/quizzes and project due dates, please subscribe to either my Algebra or 7th Accelerated courses.
 
I hope this website will help you and your child stay informed about what is happening in my classroom. If you should ever have a question or concern, please use the following contact information to reach me throughout the year. You can phone me or email me, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Pythagorean Theorem Projects

Hello 7th ACC Parents,
This is a friendly reminder that your child's math project is due tomorrow, 2-3-17. Please note....many of your kids have already turned theirs in early...yay. However, I wanted to give each of you a chance to ask your child about theirs tonight and see if they need to make any finishing touches to it before they turn it in tomorrow!!! Many thanks for your help :)
 
 

upcoming progress reports

Good Afternoon Parents,
 
I'm notifying you to explain your child's upcoming Algebra grade on this weeks progress report. The grade reflected on this upcoming progress report will be recent daily grades only. With our campus testing days and us following the new Algebra 1 PAP district curriculum, a Unit 5 Test (Exponents & Polynomials) is scheduled for this Wednesday January 25th. Unfortunately, grades submission is tomorrow. So...to see a true reflection of your child's grade in Algebra, please go online for their actual grade this Friday. This grade will show the 70% major & 30% daily averaged together for their actual current grade. I'm sorry for this inconvenience, but we are covering the curriculum and each lesson as requested by our district.
 
Sincerely,
Debbie Turpin
