Maker Fair April 22 at Hobart High School

The School City of Hobart is encouraging all students to participate in the Maker Fair coming in April. Here is a link to more information about the event. If your child makes/creates things, they can showcase their work. Otherwise, come and see what students throughout our district do!


We will be finishing Chapter 7 this week. There will be a math test on Friday, March 13. We will not be having the usual reading/spelling tests, so this should work out well. Please watch for math homework Tuesday - Thursday nights that will review all of the skills on the test, to help them prepare. Chapter 7 focuses on patterns and rules of addition. Chapter 8 will be an overview of fractions.
