That's MAW - not to be confused with MWahahahahaha. MAW. As in Make-A-Wish.
I figured it's probably a good idea to alert you to the fact that we had our Make-A-Wish kick-off today. (Maybe you were already aware of this...)

Concord Junior High has raised over $250,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation. It has granted a lot of wishes for kids in Northern Indiana. If you can think of a way to help out, I'd like to encourage you to do so. I understand budgets are tight. I understand there's little time. But at least consider it.
As for the rest of the school day - today was pretty big when it comes to 7th grade social studies. You guessed it, it was ISTEP day. I'm pretty sure the entire school breathed a collective sigh of relief, the students, staff - all of us. I only wish I could see the scores today!

If you want the extra credit for reading and discussing the blog, tell your parents how you thought you did on the social studies portion of the ISTEP.

Turn it in when you show up on Monday.
