On Monday, June 17th we will be having our first annual **Student Conference Day** to complement the field day that we have traditionally had on the last day of classes. This is an opportunity for you to create your own schedule of interesting activities through the first part of the day, followed by the end-of-year celebration/relaxation of field day.

Your *specific* expectations depend on what class you’re in, so check the sections below. The general schedule is as follows:

- 8:55- 9:20 (Period 1): Review of Day, ICSD Goals and Priorities Survey
- 9:25-10:25 Session A
- 10:30-11:30 Session B OR 9th Grade Lunch
- 11:35-12:35 Session C or 10th Grade Lunch
- 12:40-1:40 Session D or 11th and 12th Grade Lunch
- 1:45 – Return to Period 1 – Leave belongings and await directions for Field Day

You should review the session offerings at the online Google site here or on the summary listing here and sign up for sessions on the Google site. If you want to go to a session instead of going to lunch, that is okay. Make sure you email yourself what sessions you are going to so you don’t forget, and note that the off-campus sessions (Mr. Heurich’s hike, Ms. Snowman’s nature walk, and Mr. Breigle’s Incodema visit) require an additional permission form.

**For my 1st period Statistics students**, since I will not be in first period to check in with you on Monday, you have been instructed to go to **York Auditorium** for your start-of-day instructions. You can plan to come to G102 in the Session D/Field Day transition, however. I’ll be back in the room by then.

**For my 6th period Statistics seniors**, if you do not have a first period class, you should go to H-courtyard.

Unless you are designated as having extended time on exams, you will be done with your test by noon and so you should **sign up for a workshop during Session D**. I’d also recommend you look at Session C options in case you finish the exam early.

You will report directly to the gym by 8:45 so that we start our exam by 9. The concessions stand will be open to drop off your phone, backpack, etc., or you can leave these items in your locker. You will spend a minimum of 1.5 hours in the gym. Once you have been released, **go to the cafeteria and get lunch**. After you eat lunch, head to Session C or Session D.

After Session D, head to your 1st period class to drop off your bags for Field Day. If you do not have a 1st period class, head to H-courtyard.

Thank you for your time and attention this year. I hope you’ve had a good year, and I hope that you’ve found your time in my class to be valuable. We’ve had a long year, though at the same time it really seemed to fly by!

As you know Monday will be the first annual **Student Conference/Field Day**. There is a lot to know about this day, but what you specifically need to know depends on what else is going on for you on Monday. This information is addressed in a separate post.

**For all students**

Please complete the course evaluation form found here. These evaluations are crucial for me to improve the course content and structure to better serve my students, as well as to improve myself as a teacher. I read every response carefully. I am not collecting names or email addresses (unless you *want* to include your name!) so please be honest!

**For AP Statistics students**

- Submit your written report and your presentation to me (and Ms. Seifert if you are in 1st period) using the filenames “LastName.LastName.LastName.Final Project Report” and “.Final Project Presentation”
- Make sure that your data sheets are linked in the appendix of your written report and the sharing settings are properly set so that I can view them!
**By June 21st**, please complete the peer evaluation form here. Submit a response for*each member*of your group, including yourself! Failure to complete this evaluation will impact your final project grade!

**For Intermediate Algebra students**

Your final exam will be on **Monday, June 17 at 9:00 in the big gym. **I’ve uploaded some final thoughts and hints about the exam here. Please take some time to look it over! Report to the big gym on Monday by 8:45 so that we can start the exam promptly at 9:00!
