Celebrate Freedom Week
Each year, during the week that includes September 17, Texas schools honor Celebrate Freedom Week to highlight the values and ideals on which the United States was founded as well as the sacrifices that were made for freedom in the founding of the country. Students learn about the intent, meaning, and importance of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, including the Bill of Rights. Students also examine the relationship between the ideas in these documents and subsequent American history.
Celebrate Freedom Week coincides with Constitution Week, established by the U.S. Congress to encourage all Americans to learn about the Constitution. Both Celebrate Freedom Week and Constitution Week focus on September 17, the date in 1787 when delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution. Congress has also designated September 17 of each year as Constitution Day.
Focus of the Week
MATH- I can solve equations using order of operations.
SCIENCE- I can demonstrate that mixtures maintain physical properties and identify changes that can occur in the physical properties of the ingredients of solutions.
SOCIAL STUDIES- I can explain key elements and the importance of the Declaration of Independence .

Important Information to Help Your Student!
What Can We Work on at Home?!?
You may have noticed that your student does not have daily homework. However your student is responsible for bringing a fact grid to Math class every day! The only time a student should have homework is to make-up missed work from an absence or work that was not completed in class. Here are some suggestions if you want your student to have extra practice.
Daily Fact Grid (multiplication chart 1-12 & 25's)
Read daily for at least 20 minutes
Practice fact fluency (multiplication & division)
Log in to ClassLink and work on Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies in Progress Learning (this used to be Education Galaxy), or check out Sora, our online digital library.
