    There have been a few "bugs" making their way through our classes - a stomach virus and the flu.  Please encourage your student to wash their hands any time possible.  I have been doing the same.  If you can donate tissue, that would be great.  Thank you Ms. How for the many donations already!
    With that said, it is very important make-up work be returned to be graded.  If not, your student may receive a failing grade.  I do make sure I give students work they missed while absent.
    Tonight is Pickett Family Night at Bojangles on Hwy 64 from 5:00 to 8:00.  If you need dinner, drop on by and let them know your child goes to Pickett.
    5th grade will be going to the symphony Thursday.  If you have not returned the permission slip, you need to do that as soon as possible.  Also remember payment for Fort Caswell is due March 22nd and you can make payments.
    We will take time to exchange Valentine treats Thursday afternoon.  I sent home a class list in Friday folders.
    This week 5th grade will continue practicing adding, subtracting and multiplying decimals.  We will learn to divide decimals next.  In science we will be finishing up with cell and moving to body systems.  Fourth grade will continue to practice comparing fractions and will be moving into decomposing, adding and subtracting fractions.  In science we will finish discussing fossils and move into weathering and erosion.
