Wow - the energy is palpable around Team Fusion. Students are pumped for Montreal! Please check in with your child about the following things:
- How is the tour guide presentation going? What is your topic?
- What is your group planning on doing for lunch?
- What do you need from us to be ready for this trip?
Otherwise, check out some other things of interest with Team Fusion.
High Interest Reading Material
The team has a couple of study halls on Friday afternoons - dominated by young males - who usually do not have a lot of schoolwork to complete. We are asking for donations of past issues of high interest reading material - sports, outdoor, music - that these groups could use in a structured reading setting. Materials would have to be donation only - they will not be returned. Please send in ASAP.
Laptops Over the Weekend and School Breaks
As a general rule, 7th graders should not have their laptops home over the weekend. If a 7th grader brings a laptop home for the weekend, please check in with Mr. Pless as to why:) Team Fusion 8th graders are permitted to take laptops home, and they should be used for schoolwork.
Over the coming long weekend (October 21-23), no laptops should be home. The team will be conducting an “audit” for the tech department Thursday, October 20.
Montreal Field Trip
*Weather still looks fine - it will be blustery so dressing for fall is a must.
**New England Federal Credit Union in Williston DOES CHARGE a small fee to non-members for converting to Canadian $. A recent non-member reports they were able to get $25.50 Canadian for $20.50 American.
***Please, Please, Please - make sure your child has plenty to eat for the trip and has money for lunch - or is bringing a lunch.
