CEMS Home Games
The Fall Season has ended. Basketball Games will begin in December.
We have finally got to the point in 6th grade math where students will be allowed to use a calculator. We use the TI-30XIIS in our classroom. I have only a class set so your child will not be able to bring one home for homework purposes. They can use a basic pocket calculator or cell phone calculator to do homework. You have the option to buy one of these calculators for your child which they will use for both 6th and 7th grade. These calculators usually run around $10-$12 at Walmart. If you have any questions, then feel free to email me anytime.
