Here are the highlights for next weeks -
Welcome Week 9/5 - 9/8
My students of the week this week are Lauren White, Victoria Schachle, and Gabe Silas. Lauren and Victoria have started off the year in geometry really well. Doing corrections in geometry is optional, and so far both of these girls have turned in almost every assignment for corrections. Not only have they turned their homework in for corrections, they have had very few, if any, questions on those assignments that needed to be fixed. If they continue to consistently do those corrections, I think they will find geometry to be a breeze. On the other hand, Gabe has taken a different approach to doing his homework. Instead of turning homework in for corrections, he has been routinely coming in to ask me questions on anything from the homework that he was not sure about. Despite the fact that he is not doing corrections, his approach is essentially achieving the same outcome as if he were. I am extremely proud of the work ethic of these three students and am confident they will be successful in all of their classes if they continue to put in this much effort.

Ms. Bristow has chosen Max DeMeritt as her student of the week. This is a slightly unusual choice because Max is not even in her class this year. That is the problem. Last year, Max quietly lobbed a daily pun in Ms. B’s direction, keeping her wits sharp and her spirits merry. This year, there is no Max, no daily pun, no Punmeister to keep the weeks rolling. Upon meeting Max in the hallway last week, Ms. Bristow noted that he is missed in her classroom. “I have no Punmeister!,” she lamented. Without skipping a beat, Max replied, “That sounds PUN-ishing.”
This is a tribute to Max’s quiet wit and lively mind. People who possess such a well-developed sense of humor deserve some recognition.
Max, just remember as you go out into the world with your priceless puns: Don’t engage in mental combat with the unarmed.
And, if you want to keep your job at the calendar factory, don’t take a day off!!
And one more: Don’t spell part backwards. It’s a trap.

Thursday, August 10 marked the Inaugural Running of the Rams Community 5K at the Catholic Schools of Fairbanks. It was a beautiful night for a race. More than 125 racers of all ages crossed the finish line. The red lantern goes to Brandy Gloria and son Ryan who finished the race in just under an hour.
The Monroe Cross Country Team (the Rams) started one minute behind the rest of the racers. The Ram mascot, Monroe cross country coach John Mayer, cheered on runners along the route. It was definitely a fun run.
