           Our Great War scrapbooks are coming along nicely!  This week, the Gators examined war in the trenches as the students wrote a letter to loved ones describing their surroundings in the trenches of France.  Students also began their investigation of what brought America into this war.  So far, we viewed the sinking of the RMS Lusitania and today, we decode the Zimmermann Telegram.
          Please ask to see your Gator's contract.  As of January 24, they should have 50 points as they completed the required elements.  Now, students will have choices on how to acquire the remaining 50 points.  Offerings have something for everyone from music to cooking to art to writing.  
       We are having some difficulty in helping our Gators complete all homework on time.  Please check the homework website for any updates and all due dates so together we can help all our Gators be a success!
       Please help your Gator to remember to :
    1. Check that homework is completed when due
    2. computer is charged
    3. computer is in the bookbag
    These will help your Gator to be all they can be.  
        The Gator planning period is from 11:50-12:25 so please feel free to contact me with any concerns.  My email is lspetzke@augusta.k12.va.us and the phone is 245-5046.
      You can always check for homework, due dates, team reminders here!
