THANK YOU TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY FOR ALL OF YOUR THOUGHTFUL, WELL WISHES OVER THE HOLIDAYS. WE ARE FORTUNATE TO WORK WITH YOUR CHILDREN AND APPRECIATE THEM EVERY DAY.
5th graders are studying Geometry. We will review our information on polygons and how to appropriately categorize and measure them. It is important that your student understand the differences and similarities between rectangles, squares, triangles, parallelograms, rhombi, and trapezoids. We will also review the radius, chord, and diameter of a circle. Ask your student how to measure the circumference of a circle.

Our writing SOL examinations will take place in early March (see above for dates). To prepare students to write to practically any prompt, we will have a weekly homework writing prompt due each Friday. Students will be able to either type or hand write to the prompt assigned on Mondays. They are to complete for homework during the week and turn in the completed essay on Fridays.
This week's homework is for students to write an essay about overcoming obstacles to achieve specific goals. The girls are to utilize their meeting with Mrs. Agee regarding "Girl Power." The boys are to utilize their meeting with Mr. Wagner for inspiration. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
