Wow, September has flown by.  Fifth grade will be taking a test on multi-digit multiplication this week.  They will begin learning about fractions as division.  For example: 2 candy bars divided among 6 friends means each friend will get 2/6 or 1/3 of a candy bar.  In science we will be wrapping up our study of ecosystems and taking that test also.  Fourth grade will continue with multiplication.  They will be learning a few different algorithms for multiplication such as area model, Napier's Bones, Lattice and traditional algorithm.  In science they will be wrapping up ecosystems also. Their next topic is the Earth in the universe.  
Looking Ahead: Progress reports will be coming home this Friday.  Tuesday, October 3rd is an early dismissal day.

Shout Outs go to Charlotte and Wes for being the top point earners on Math Rules.  They are going to be tough to beat. Top 5th grade performers in Prodigy last week were Diamond, Victor B. and Arianna T.  Top 4th grade performers were Jonathon, Ariel and Rashard.  Great Job Guys!!
After four weeks the following 5th graders have gotten 80% or more correct on their Daily Word Problem homework.  They are on track to earn that math extra credit:  Rayann, Julie, Angel, Nirena, Charlotte and Hailey.  The following 4th graders have 80% or more correct: Lucas, Zyanna, Andre, Andrew, Julian, Wes and Colin.  There are several others who are close.  There's still four weeks left to get as many correct as possible.  Keep up the good work.
