Ms. Prestjohn's Newletter: Wk of 12/07/15
This week we are practicing perseverance along with math! Students will take their test this week on using all four operations with decimals. The earliest they will begin the test is Wednesday (odd Block day), but I will allow them to begin the test on Friday, if I see that they are not yet prepared. I am more focused on them mastering the skill than I am in collecting grades.
Speaking of grades, grades will end on Friday for the 2nd 9-week progress reporting period. Grades will finalize at the end of the day the following Monday. Please encourage your student to be aware of their grades in all classes and turn in any missing or late assignments as well as making sure all re-testing is complete by then.
Students continue to use TransMath and we should be able to add Think Through Math this week as an additional support.
Until next week...!
