Pre-AP Math ~ Mrs. Justice and Ms. Gregg

The big day is finally here and I am confident that all of the students will rock the STAAR!!! They have worked extremely hard to make sure they are comfortable and confident in the 6th grade math skills. Monday will be the 6th grade math test and Tuesday will be the 6th grade reading test.


On Wednesday, we will begin working on some more 7th grade skills to help ensure that we are ready for next year. We will also begin to work on review material for the final exam over the next couple of weeks.
