Chapter 2 and Unit 2 Math tests are on their way home this week. Students were able to earn extra points and should be able to discuss this with you.

The week ahead in 5th Grade Math: We will continue to dive into more concepts about fractions including, fractions as division and adding and subtracting like and unlike fractions.

The week ahead in 6th Grade Math: We are continuing to sharpen our decimal skills this week. We will be examining the patterns and strategies when multiplying and dividing decimals.

The week ahead in 6th Grade Projects: We will have our Unit 2 Test this Thursday, October 17th. Projects are coming along nicely! Students have written the rough drafts for their essays and are beginning to get involved in building and becoming experts on their landform. We will be holding presentations, gallery style on October 24th.

Classroom and School News and Events:

Friday, Oct. 18th- Parent/Teacher Conferences

Thursday, Oct. 24th- Projects Due

From Middle School and High School Student Council:

While you’re cleaning out the coat closet gather up any pairs of shoes you no longer want and donate them also.  Oasis high school and middle school Student Councils are participating in a Global Act of Kindness by pairing up with   www.thinkkindness.org to bring shoes to the children of Ghana, Africa.  Children in Ghana cannot attend school if they do not have a pair of shoes so please help us help them. These shoes will not only keep them from having to go barefoot, but also give them the gift of an education.  We are holding a shoe drive until October 31 to collect any new or used shoes (sneakers, sandals, etc). There is a purple tub at the front office to drop them in. New and gently used shoes will go on their feet and shoes that are more worn will be recycled. The money from the recycled shoes will allow them to purchase school supplies, books and medical supplies.

As always please email me with any questions or concerns. Looking forward to the week ahead!

Mrs. Ponessa
