TOYS FOR TOTS!!! Collecting Monday, November 10th – Friday, November 21st

Our annual Toys for Tots campaign is quickly approaching! The National Junior Honor society for OMMS is collecting money to purchase toys for families that would otherwise not have a Christmas. Last year, we were able to collect over $2,500, and our goal is to surpass our last year’s total! Please start collecting your change and dollars that  you wish to donate.

I will be the teacher collecting money for the 7th grade red team, and we will keep a total in each class. As there are a few students on our team that do not have me for math, please encourage them to come see me, so we can adopt them to a class so they can participate in the fun of sharing and giving as well! We will be collecting Monday, November 10th – Friday, November 21st, so please be ready to donate your spare dollars and change!

If you are wanting to collect within your community and would like more information, please take the attached letter with you! (TFT Community Letter 2014)

Ideas to raise money:

  • Bake sale
  • Ask family, friends, neighbors
  • Donate time to help with chores to earn money
  • Attend the Annual OMMS Toys for Tots Faculty Auburn v. Alabama match: Thursday, November 20th!

Adding Integers Rhyme

This is a little jingle that might help you remember the rules for adding integers.

Remember from class:

  • Same signs
    • Add the numbers
    • Keep the sign
  • Different signs
    • Subtract the numbers (larger-smaller)
    • Keep the sign of larger number


Same sign add and keep,
Different signs subtract.
Take the sign of the larger number,
Your answer will be exact.
