Just Some "Stuff"

Don't forget the Coupon Book Fundraiser.  This is the last chance to earn money for the overnight field trip.  Please remember the sample book in your selling kit must be returned.  If it is not returned the cost of the book will be added to the cost of the field trip. The last day to order is February 28th.  
The fifth grade trip is to Fort Caswell on May 1st and 2nd.  All money for the trip must be paid by March 28th.  We must submit our final number going on the trip and payment in April.  If you would like to be a chaperone, you must have the background check done by this date also.

Both 4th and 5th grade students have started a math notes booklet.  Over the next week or two we will be adding notes about all math topics.  Students will use this for the rest of the school year to practice and prepare for the EOG.
One obstacle that seems to keep many students from doing well is actually writing down and COMPLETELY working out math problems.  Many, for whatever reason, feel they can work problems or parts of problems in their head without writing it down.  This is causing many to make careless errors.  I have stressed to students they need to write down the problem, they need to be neat and organized and they must work out the whole problem.  Please talk to your student to make sure they understand the importance of this.
Don't forget the 5th grade homework calendar and the 4th grade homework calendar for math.  You can also use the Parent Portal to check grades. Students should also be reading EVERY night.
Progress reports will be sent home next Friday.
