Hello Third Quarter

posted Jan 22, 2019, 4:51 AM by
This week is the first week of the third quarter.  Report cards should be sent home Friday in Friday folders.  
 Fifth grade will be reviewing multiplying and dividing fractions and then will move into multiplying and dividing decimals.  In science we began learning about genetics and inherited traits.  If possible, please allow your student to bring a picture of a parent or grandparent when they were young.  We are going to compare the picture with the student and see what traits have been passed down.  This is always fun and surprising.
    Fourth grade will begin fractions.  We will be learning about fractions the whole third quarter.  We will begin with equivalent fractions and comparing fractions.  In science fourth grade will be learning about fossils - how they are created and how they are used to study Earth's history.
    Fifth grade has a field trip to the Symphony February 14th.  There was a permission slip in last week's Friday folder.  The cost is $5.00  I will be sending home information about the Fort Caswell Trip soon.  I will let everyone know their balance due.
