Thank you for attending Open House last night.  It was a pleasure to see so many parents.  Do not forget to sign and return the student acknowledgement form as soon as possible.  If you were unable to attend, please look for an envelope which will be sent home with your child.  The envelope is full of information and your child’s Standardized test scores.

Zero Rules and Add and Subtract Decimals Notes and HW  (Remember on the homework the subtraction problems are order specific which means you may end up doing a lot of borrowing and renaming.)

Bring your device to school tomorrow.  We will access the internet and play a game for our bellringer.  I attempted to check out some extra devices, but all are being used for Media Center Orientation at this time :(

Letters went home with students today if they did not show 90% accuracy on the basic facts test.  Those forms should be signed by the parent and student and returned tomorrow.

Textbooks were issued to each child today.  I will also issue an online textbook code sometime during the next few weeks.

We continued to work on Long division today in class.  Students are doing well and getting more comfortable with some of the strategies that make it easier.

HW:  Division 2 Digit Divisor 11 Problems

Open House is tonight at 6:00 pm.  Make sure you know your child’s schedule.  Students with Electives first period will meet in the lunchroom.
