ATTENTION PARENTS AND STUDENTS OF 313, 216, AND 317! Science Fair data is due on Wednesday 11/1 for 313 & 317 and on Thursday for 216. I will post a section on Google classroom for students to upload their data table with complete data. Students that are collecting plant growth may have a data table with a couple of days worth of data missing. This means a couple of data points and not an almost blank data table! I WILL NOT BE GIVING OUT EXTENSIONS for this due date. I have consistently been reminding students ALL MONTH about this pending due date.
Science Fair data is due the week of October 30/31. This means the experiment and all data needs to be done by that date! We will be reviewing data tables and data collection next week. I suggested students start working on their projects as early as this weekend.
Coonley's Beta Club is up and running again!!!! Our first fundraiser this year is to support those that have been hit hard in Hurricane's Harvey and Irma.

This week Room 317 students will be receiving a field trip slip and packet for our October Dunes trip. Part of that packet is a double sided field trip slip/water policy form. Both sides must be completed and turned in to Ms. Beecher. In addition to the paper slip there is also an online form that must be filled out. Each student must have a parent fill out this form by October 2nd for the use of the Dunes Learning Center.
Adult chaperones also need to fill out a form, this link will be sent to you directly if you have volunteered to chaperone.
My website was down for a couple of days. It is working again as of now! Here is the Dunes trip chaperone information and the Open House Powerpoint.

Jennifer Nielson-- Thursday, Sept. 21.
She's touring for the second book in the Horizon series: Deadzone.
New York Times bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen joins the race for survival! The survivors have made it out of the jungle, but they may be sorry they ever left when they stumble upon a whole new ecosystem, populated with entirely new threats. And the greatest threat of all may come from within. Because one of the kids is changing...
The seven-book series begun by #1 New York Times bestseller Scott Westerfeld only gets bigger and bolder under the frenzied imagination of bestselling, critically acclaimed author Jennifer A. Nielsen!
Bio: Jennifer A. Nielsen is the acclaimed author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Ascendance Trilogy: The False Prince, The Runaway King, and The Shadow Throne. She also wrote the Mark of the Thief trilogy: Mark of the Thief, Rise of the Wolf, and Wrath of the Storm; the standalone fantasy The Scourge; the historical thriller A Night Divided; and Book Six of the Infinity Ring series, Behind Enemy Lines. Jennifer lives in northern Utah with her husband, their three children, and a perpetually muddy dog.
Praise for Book 1 in the Horizon series:
“The fast-paced action and mystery … should keep readers glued to this book and eager for the next one, due in fall 2017 from Jennifer A. Nielsen.”
“The setting is effectively developed, with a threat level that's high enough for effective suspense but not too gruesome, and the characters provide many points of entry for a broad spectrum of readers. A solid popcorn adventure.”
