Number 4...

So it's a little late, but by now you know when the meetings are. I mean, when I call my team members, they tell ME when the meeting is. Rumors abound that we receive copies of the second play, Antony and Cleopatra tomorrow. Who knows. As to the rest of the material to be covered at this meeting...anything could happen.

What: Sunset Academic Decathlon Summer Meeting #4
When: July 20th, 2005, from 1-4 p.m.
Where: Portable A (yep, it's still there)
Tests: NONE! Woohoo! Enjoy the absence while it lasts.
To be covered: Whatever crosses the coaches mind...bring all the resources you can find/think are worth bringing.

I think that's it. Changes will be posted by the coaches. Maybe.

Antony & Cleopatra (play #2)

Here's the online copy--so start reading:

Antony & Cleopatra

We'll test over it the meeting after next, August 3rd (our summer grand finale!). Since you don't have any tests next meeting, it would be really smart to get this out of the way with, before we hit you with Art, Music, Anatomy & Physiology, and more Economics...

Just as a side note, I met an Acadec kid who goes to Frisco High School--he told me that they have written summaries and timelines for all seven subjects due by the end of summer, or they get cut from the program entirely! (Just in case you thought we were working you too hard).

Regardless, Sunset is, as always, the best--and we're going to win District this year. Yes, that means you. Now get busy!

Message to the Black Team and Meeting Number Three

Here we are again, coming up on the third summer session. I'll start with a message to any and all black team members who read this blog:

To the Black Team:
Anything you might have heard about a meeting on Tuesday (Gisela), forget it. We're meeting early on Wednesday, so that Coach Weatherford can go over the math. I know you guys were confused, don't try to hide it. You need to be there at about 11:45 a.m. Yes, in the morning. It'll be worth it; the math will be fresh in your brains when we get ready to test. Plus, none of you will be late when the real meeting starts. That being said...

To Sunset Academic Decathlon as a whole:
We are having our third summer session this Wednesday, July 6th, in Portable A from 1-4 p.m. For starters, we'll be taking two tests, one over some basic and general math concepts, the other over one of the plays, Much Ado About Nothing. After we test, we'll probably go over the tests, as well as go over some anatomy and physiology, which is the Science theme this year. Also, if time permits, Coach Weatherford will go over some more math, namely, trigonometric functions. All in all, it should be barrels of fun.

By the way, if you think I over did the bold, I did it because I find that some people get bored reading long posts. The bold covers most of the really important points.

Quick Breakdown:
What: Third Summer Session
When: Wednesday, July 6th, 2005 from 1-4 p.m.
Where: Portable A
Tests: Math, Much Ado About Nothing
Bring: Pencils/Pens, Paper, 3-4 dollars for pizza, and all the resources you possess
