Only 2 weeks left before winter break!
In the past, Alcoa Elementary School has hosted a parent-teacher conference night. Since this night can be a busy whirlwind, Alcoa Intermediate has decided not to have a single parent-teacher night but to encourage parents to schedule a conference with their child's teacher on an afternoon that works best. Mrs. Macejewski and I would love to meet with anyone that would like to come in and meet with us about their student or to answer any questions. Feel free to email, write a note in the planner, or call us to schedule one.

- December 18th - AR Reward - Ancient Olympics

Division with remainders! The students worked on finding different strategies for determining the answer to division story problems that required remainders. Counting out one at a time or in groups, using multiplication facts, constructing a ratio table, or using tiles were a few ways that we were able to demonstrate a division problem.
This week the students picked one of the prehistoric Native American groups to further research and to start working on a research paper. They used graphic organizers to begin putting together a 5 paragraph paper focusing on the time period, tools, weapons, housing and other ways of life.
