April is Autism Awareness Month

OPES celebrates Autism Awareness month with Be A PAL month. Throughout the month, we highlight our PALs and all the wonderful things they do!

Also join us in showing our support for Autism Awareness by wearing BLUE on Tuesday, April 2nd! Each and every year, my family shows support by wearing blue and lighting our house blue! Please join us and the world in showing how much we love and support kids with AUTISM and AUTISM awareness. Did you know???? 1 in every 68 children are diagnosed with Autism. Please show your support! For more information, check out the Autism speaks website. http://www.autismspeaks.org/

3rd Quarter Report Cards Wednesday!

Math News

This week will be focusing on finishing up Chapter 9 (Fractions and Decimals). Study Guide will be coming in the near future. I expect to test on Chapter 9 on Monday, April 7th. (I hate to give a test on Monday, but I don't want the students to have MAP test and a Math test on Friday.) We will also be working on a 'Fraction Of' packet in which students learn how much is 1/2 of 16. We will be moving into Geometry and Measurement in the weeks ahead.

Science News

We will extensively be working on our Electricity unit this week. Students will be building series and parallel circuits. The kids really love this unit of study. Electricity test date will be posted soon. Expect it to come next week! Please begin reviewing notes nightly.
