- I am still looking for 1-2 parent representative(s) for our parent council. As we will be planning a Grade Six Trip and Farewell, we would like to have as many parents as possible have input in helping us plan and fundraise. This is a super important role for our class & school and we’d appreciate anyone who is able to take on this role.
- Please check powerschool every Monday for new marks that went up. Message me if you have any questions or concerns.
- Students are finishing Unit 3: Decimals. Test Monday Jan.27
- Students will begin Unit 5 in their math textbook on Tuesday Jan. 28
- We are continuing to work on fact fluency (simple addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). Please continue to practice long division using the help post I provided last week & the practice booklets that were sent home (due date on Jan 30th).
- Spelling: Students are working on spelling and building their vocabulary with weekly spelling words. Students will be bringing these words home on Monday and will have a test every 2 weeks on Monday on those words. All these tests are available on powerschool within a few days of them writing them. (WTW Test on Feb. 10th)
- Reading: Please continue reading for 20 minutes every night, have a parent sign off on the reading and making sure to complete book reports.
