Shakeout
On 10/15 at 10:15 am we participated in the Great California Shakeout. Students did a great job getting out of the class quickly and quietly. Talk about what your safety plan is at home.

Math
This week in math 5th graders took a test on concept 2-1 using the correct Order of Operations in an equation (PEMDAS) and illustrating a mathematical expression using a model and stating with words.  The test was sent home on Thursday.  4th graders also took their test.  Please make sure that you ask you child about their test and review their work with them.  If you see mistakes, please spend a little time with them to go over the work and make sure that they master the skills and concepts.

Next week 4th and 5th grade students will be working on building their adding, subtracting, multiplication. and division skills  Please keep working on those math facts in multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction.

I also am looking for a parent to help me burn a set of multiplication songs on CDs for our students.  If you can help me with that task, please shoot me an email and let me know.

Science
We are learning about wind and weather right now. Have your child watch the news weather report. Talk about the weather and the currents of high and low pressure.

PTA
I sent home envelopes for PTA membership on Thursday.  (Sorry, I just got the envelopes.)  A strong PTA can really make a school!  And your participation is needed.  Please do what you can to send the envelope back, then come and join the meetings.  The next PTA event will be on October 30th, the Monster Mash dance.  Come with your spirits (your little ghosts, goblins, and ghouls) to dance and eat!  I’m sure that the PTA can also use some help decorating the auditorium and running the food booths.  The next PTA meeting will be on November 18th at 5:30.
