    Dear parents and students,

    Happy second week of February!  This week, we are jumping right into our MSA Prep.  We're doing something new this year, MSA Boot Camp!  I'm currently setting it up.

    We will postpone our research project for a couple of weeks, as we are dedicating this time to reviewing material to prepare us for the test in early March.  Here are your homework assignments for the week.
