    Ms. Lettau's Mastery Club
    This is a club designed for students who wish to go "above and beyond" the normal classroom expectations.
    All you have to do is learn about the topic of your choice from the list below and then share what you learned with Ms. Lettau. You can head off to the library or just click on the links below for help with answers. 
     
    Then, come tell Ms. Lettau the answers on the scheduled date and time given. (Tues. and Thurs. after DLR/unfinished work)
    For each topic you master, that number will be placed on the Mastery Club Chart. Students who answer 25 topics correctly will be entered into our Mastery Club Hall of Fame. 
     
    Best of luck to you!
