The Barkley-Johnson Bulletin

Week of January 21st-23rd

What Are We Learning This Week?

ELA: We will spend the week discovering about Martin Luther King, Jr while incorporating many reading skills. Next week kicks off our Greek Mythology unit!


Math: We will be kicking off the 3rd quarter by learning about what fractions are, and then moving straight into equivalent fractions. This is covering standard 4NF.1.

Important Information:

  • Please remember that there is NO SCHOOL for students on Monday, January 19th and Tuesday, January 20th. We will see you back ready to kick off the 3rd quarter on Wednesday, January 21st.

  • It is VERY IMPORTANT to make sure your student has ear buds or headphones. Many programs and online activities require sound, and we have many students without headphones. Thank you for your help with this!

  • For the 3rd quarter, it is very important for your student to have a Math Notebook. This can be a single subject spiral bound book. Please make sure your student is ready to go with one on Wednesday!

  • All 2nd quarter tests have been taken, and all 2nd quarter grades have been submitted. We will be discussing the EOQ scores with all students over the next few school days, and report cards will be sent home on Wednesday, January 28th. You will also find writing samples in this report card.
