Week at a Glance…

We will be reviewing fifth grade whole number skills this week in math.  We will begin with place value and continue our week with rounding, adding and subtracting with regrouping, and long multiplication using a standard algorithm.  Your child will have access to his or her math notebook each night to assist with homework.  We will conclude our week with two silver quizzes on multiplication facts and the skills covered this week.  Have a wonderful week!!

Parent Signature for HW

We reviewed the expectations for our math interactive notebook today in class.  The students glued in the accountability statement and agreed to the expectations by signing the form.  Each child’s homework tonight is to show you the accountability statement and then get a parent signature.  Thank you so much for your assistance.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email.

Cook Class Information Sheet

Your child will be given an information sheet concerning the basics of our math class procedures.  We discussed the sheet in detail today, but I wanted you to have a copy for your records.  If the class information sheet does not make it home today, I have attached an electronic copy.  Your child’s homework for me is to give you this sheet.  Thank you!!

Wonderful First Day!!

We are having a wonderful first day of school at Helena Middle School.  The students are finding their classes, opening their lockers, and meeting new teachers and friends.

Please send all of your child’s supplies to school with him or her tomorrow.  We will begin the process of organizing supplies and lockers.  Thank you!!

First Day of School

I am looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow.  Please remember that sixth graders report to the cafeteria in the morning when they arrive at school.  We are asking that students only bring a notebook or binder, pencil, and lunch if needed tomorrow.  Lockers will be assigned in science classes with time given to practice the combinations.
