Weekly Update: Hill Math Class

Week of March 23rd

Math Department Update:

First, we want to thank you for your support and cooperation as we go through this challenging time while Mr. Hill recovers.


As a department we have assessed each of the 5th grade math classes, and Mr. Hill’s class is right on pace with the other two classes. In the absence of Mr. Hill, the math department will be sending out weekly updates to the parents of his students regarding the material being covered that week. In the meantime Mr. Donaldson will continue to teach Mr Hill’s classes.


If you have any questions about your child's progress in math, please contact Ms. White via phone or email. She can be reached at mwhite@mayfieldjs.org. In addition, Ms. White will be offering some additional assistance beyond what is usually available by Mr. Scanlon.
