Can you believe that it is already November? We have jumped right into our second trimester! Before you know it, we will be heading right into Winter Break.
Student Led conferences are coming up! If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so at the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A094EA9AE2BA0F85-student
YOU ONLY NEED TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR CHILD’S HOMEROOM TEACHER. Ms. Sue and I can not meet with all parents. If your child is not in my homeroom and you have any concerns, please contact me directly and we can schedule a meeting.
Please note that conferences are only 25 minutes. On the Sign Up Genius site, there are a few times that show two available slots. However, there is only time for ONE conference. If the available times do not work for you, please contact me and we can find a time that works for both of us.
Students will be leading the conference. I will only facilitate as needed.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Students were sent home with information regarding their STEM project. This project is due January 22nd, and the STEM fair will be held January 24th. There are checkpoints from now until the project is due. These check points will help students stay on track and not get behind on this project. It’s really important that you are checking in with your child and supporting them when needed. This project will be done mostly at home. We will be writing a research paper that goes along with their project. This will be done in class.
STUDENTS WILL NEED A COMPOSITION NOTEBOOK TO KEEP TRACK OF ALL OF THEIR INFORMATION FOR THEIR STEM PROJECT. I gave out a few composition notebooks to those who asked me for one this week. I have a few extra. Please have your child ask for one from me if you are unable to get one.
In addition, if your child wishes to use animals, humans, or hazardous chemicals for their project the deadline to get approval for those items is NOV. 19th.
In math we have been working on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals. We will (hopefully) be moving into dividing fractions by fractions next week.
Book Fair 2018 will start Tuesday 11/14 - 11/20
