Quizzes and Biospheres

Subject: upcoming quiz and event
Hello parents,

We will be having a quiz on April 13th.  Children are receiving a review sheet in class today.  It is also highly suggested that they reread the Biosphere 2 reading in preparation.

On May 10th, we will have visitors from the Dolan Harbor DNA Labs.  There is an $8.00 fee for this in school field trip.  Permission slips are going home today. Warm regards, B Fisher

Oh, Beth. Why would you want the kids to reread a 272 page book in a weekend? They have other things to do like not read nonfiction.

Don't get me wrong. I support reading as much as the next fictional mother and aspiring writer, but the book looks boring. I doubt I'd be able to get through one reading, let alone a reread. Has anyone read Biosphere 2? Does it actually pertain to what Tasma's learning?

Come to think of it, I don't think Tasma read it the first time. That little girl is in trouble.

_________ hit of the day: Penetrate by Godhead


  1. I think the most troubling aspect of this newest email is the 8 dollar "in school field trip" fee. It is not a trip if someone is coming to your school to speak. There should also be no fee. And why permission slips?

    Oh, Beth... you worry me.

  2. It is shocking, isn't it to have a permission slip for an in-house trip. But, some people (The Wolsteins) don't want their children to learn about DNA.
