    Mr. Gonzalez,

    Your class has been very good. They listened to me and did what I asked. I gave out SOAR tickets.
    They got a bit restless after lunch and before PE. Brandon went home sick at 8:40am

    Santiago and Cindy were very helpful.
    In the Social Studies book we went over the time lines on pages 80-83 then looked at the Map on pages 84-85.
    Skipped over the pages 90 to 93 and had them read “Gilgamesh the King”.
    I looked up Egyptian Hieroglyphs and made copies for you and the class. I had them write their names with the symbols. Also their family names.

    Overall the class was good, but they got out of hand after PE.

    Good luck in Bakersfield.
