Dear Parents/Guardians,


It was my pleasure to meet with all of you on curriculum night last Tuesday.

This week in math 7/8 we will continue Unit 2, Integers and Rational Numbers. Students will work on absolute values, coordinate planes, and translation and reflection of figures. Student will take the second quiz this Friday, which will include the learning targets four, five, and six of this unit.

Students took the first quiz for Unit 2 last Friday. I will return it to them tomorrow. They are allowed to retake it all this week.

On the website I added a “Prior Skills” section to help students review all the skills needed for this unit.

I am changing the homework grading policy so that if a student turns in their homework late they can only receive up to 70%. The homework should only take 20 minutes to complete.

I noticed a number of students copied notes from their classmates. Please speak with your children on the importance of watching the videos and filling the notes themselves. 


In Algebra 8/Intermediate Algebra we will be finishing Unit 1: Applied Linear Function this week. We will review, and have a unit project. The final test for this unit will be on Thursday.  We will start Unit 2: System of Equations and Inequalities on Friday.


I’m available this week on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 8:30 am, everyday at lunch, and afterschool this Wednesday till 5:30 pm.


Please check the portal, and encourage your child to come and retake if needed.


Thank you very much,

Abir Ismail
