We are coming to the end of our unit on Area and Perimeter this week. We will do a project on Wednesday, as well as our test on Friday. The class seems to be doing well, however, you may want to study up on the difference between the two.
In Science this week, we will continue with our study of the sun and moon. On Monday, a paper will go home to be filled out each night. A quick look at the moon will help your child fill out the form each night. This should take only 5 minutes, so it should not be adding too much extra time for homework. Also, if I need to approve any Science Fair projects, please get them to me ASAP.
Finally, be aware that low grade notices are going home this week. This is for our final reporting period. I must send one home if a student has any possibility of receiving a 2 or less. This means a student could be at 77% which is a 3, but if test scores start to drop they will end with a 2. Therefore, I have to send home a low grade notice. I will note if this is the case. I will be requesting a conference in some cases, please be sure to read the paper carefully.
Have a great week and enjoy your Spring Break!
