This Week w/ Ms. Werth

Aug. 24th - Sept. 4th, 2015

For Your Information

The beginning of the school year has seen us spend most of our time thus far simply getting to know each other, and learn about the various aspects of what will be our class life this year (i.e. rules, expectations, etc.). I would be remiss if I did not say thank you to everyone who has already donated any item(s) that were requested as needed in our classroom, those items are most appreciated and please accept my advanced appreciation for any/all future contributions as they will certainly come in handy over the course of this school year.

Math and Science

Our first week in math saw us delve into a review of multiplication processes that students learned in third grade. Accelerated Math began this week as well, and beginning next week students will be expected to master three objectives each week.

Science instruction will begin this coming week.

The Leader In Me

One of the most exciting aspects of this school year is the adoption of The Leader in Me Program here at Blackburn.

"The Leader in Me is FranklinCovey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader."
