X-Block, MAP & ATLs

Good morning, all X-Blockers.

Here are the key points for today.

Grade 7 – Off to MAP Reading at the end of break.

Grade 6 & 8 Kitchen X-Blockers please check in with Ms Cynthia in the design centre as Mr Snyder is supervising MAP.

All other grades 6 & 8 move quickly and quietly to your assigned locations at the end of break. If you have an off-campus mentor make sure you log onto Teams as soon as you have checked in with the room supervisor.

All students remember to discuss your ATL grades with your mentor TODAY. Happy X-Blocking!
