Knox Articulation Fieldtrip
Remember to pack a lunch for our fieldtrip on Friday, January 8th.
Parents who are driving can meet us at Knox at 10:00 or come park near our school and arrange some carpooling among ourselves. (Unfortunately the parking lot is full for staff parking so please plan your time accordingly to find parking nearby.)  The bus will be here at 10:00 to take us over, and I understand it is just a few minutes away.
Remember to send your child with a jacket for the trip, as it might be a bit wet and chilly.

Middle School Articulation Meeting at Nye Elementary on January 22nd at 1:00 pm
Please make sure that you put January 22nd at 1:00 in your calendar.
We will have a few different schools visiting to give you a chance to see what other magnet and charter programs are available in our district for our 5th graders going to middle school. Many or these schools require an application and may have other requirements for their lottery. There are so many different opportunities and choices for your child’s next step, so I strongly encourage you to attend to find out more.

Math
Our 5th graders have just finished our 3rd Concept unit on Operations with Decimals and and have taken their test.  They are now beginning Concept 4 on Operations with Fractions.   Students should keep working on their math facts, accuracy, and reading carefully to solve problems.

Our 4th graders are finishing up Concept 3 on multiplication and division.  We will be taking our classroom assessment next week so, make sure that your child is practicing using these operations, and are checking their work and reading carefully.

Some or our students still need to work on their math facts for multiplication and division.  Please help them master those at home.  Use the math cards to play math games.  Have them quiz themselves and check with a calculator.  Make up problems in multiplication and division to solve and check.  And remind your child to keep up with their online work in Pearson Math and the Math Mission in Khan Academy.  Students using these resources regularly are doing so much better on their classwork.

Happy 2016 —Welcome Back to School!
