## Mathematics 8 Test; Friday, November 18, 2016

Grade 8 students will be having a Mathematics test on Friday on The Pythagorean Theorem, Pythagorean Triple, Finding the missing legs, angles, squares, square roots and perfect squares.

Students in Grade 8 Health are working on the 7 Sacred Teachings.  These teachings are based on a positive outlook which are, respect, honesty, truth, wisdom, courage, and humility.  At this time we are learning about respect and wisdom, which involves us to change our mindset.  To change our mindset is to change our wordings to something positive for example "I can't do this".  To have a positive aspect in life, we have to change the way we say things in a positive manner, such as "How can I change this to understand, or who can help me understand better."
