This Thursday, we will be walking to the Fallon Theater to watch Home Alone. Please sign your child’s permission slip and send them to school with $5. We are also participating in Secret Santa. Each student has chosen a name and should be purchasing a small gift to give them at the party.
Students can also wear ugly sweaters or Christmas shirts or red, white, or green on Thursday!
5th Grade Math – This week we are beginning a new unit on Perimeter and Area. This year, students will calculate area and perimeter with fractions. On Tuesday and Wednesday we will be working on a fun Elf House project based on these skills. https://www.khanacademy.org/math/arithmetic-home/arith-review-fractions/multiply-fractions/v/example-finding-area-with-fractional-sides

We will also find the percent of a number. https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/pre-algebra-ratios-rates/pre-algebra-percent-decimal-conversions/v/representing-a-number-as-a-decimal-percent-and-fraction
6th Grade Projects – We are studying ways that humans impact the Earth. We will be working on a new project this week, which is to come up with an idea for a new conservation law for our area, that would help reduce negative impacts on Earth.
