week 31

My apologies for the lack of email yesterday, however the students had the words written down and knew what to do for homework. The copier was broken, but the new sheet will be sent home today. As this is the fourth nine weeks things are getting very hectic. Please ensure your child’s success by continuing to hold them accountable for reading, homework, and using the computer resources available. We still have much work to do and little time to fit it all in.

In science we will continue to explore matter, while in social studies we learn about saving and spending. In math we are learning the many different ways to measure and graph. The students have decided to save their pennies for a great cause. One of our TEAM member’s church sends boxes to the soldiers overseas. We would like to collect our change to see just how fast it adds up. If everyone gave a penny a day, we would have more than $6 by the end of the month. You would be surprised how far that goes when helping others. Please help us, help them. Thank you.hmk week 31
