Next week we will be working to review all concepts we have covered this year, in preparation for STAAR. Don’t forget our Math STAAR test is Tuesday, May 10th.
Mrs. Neely has created a practice packet for students to work through at home, this is going home TODAY. I am not making it mandatory for the weekend, however it would be very beneficial for your child to work through this packet. Once they get it completed (this weekend or next week), they can bring it in to earn a Wild Buck and I will give them the answer key to check their work.
