Good Morning Parents,
I hope everyone has had a great weekend! I wanted to let you know what has been going on in the classroom as well as upcoming events in school. This week in math both math groups are finishing up our unit on decimals. Students have been working on order of operations as well as reviewing operations with decimals. Next Friday, students will be having a unit test on decimals. A decimal review packet will be going home with both math groups tomorrow which will be due the following week. This will help students be successful for their test as well as count as a test grade. Please be sure your child completes this to the best of their abilities. In language arts students continue to work on different types of pronouns. In religion, students are finishing up a unit on the sacraments of initiation next week.They will have a test next Thursday. In social studies, students are working on cumulative project on the Lost Colony of Roanoke. They have a project due on Monday. The class will then be learning about colonization in America. In reading, we have started our new book Bud Not Buddy. This book is about a young orphaned boy growing up during the depression.
