Don't Forget Think Through Math

Don't forget that 2 lessons of TTM are due on Fridays. Students are able to work on it some in the computer lab, at least the next couple weeks. They are able to do 2 additional lessons for extra credit (5pts each).

Just a Note: I grade TTM from Saturday to Friday. So for example, this week would be Dec. 13-19

Homework this week

Permission slips due Friday!

Watch for math homework this week!!

Revolutionary Days and Wax Mueum

The fifth grade has been selected to participate in Revolutionary Days at Kirk of the Hills, on January 29, 2015. Each student is required to dress in period dress for this event. I am attaching some ideas to come up with a costume. Please do not feel as if you have to spend a lot of money. There are numerous ways to do this for very little money.

In addition, we will be doing a Wax Museum the 28th, at school. The students can wear the same costume again.

Permission slips are due Friday!

Thank you for your support,

Jenna Buell
