Week of 1/15 – 19, 2018

I am sending home the review packets for the Math test that is scheduled for Thursday. We have been told that no further extensions will be made for testing due to snow. This means that if we are out tomorrow (or more), we will test as soon as we return. These packets contain samples for types of questions that will be asked on the Math Benchmark. It is vital that students complete, correct, and understand all of the work, as well as show all work needed to solve each. It is also important that they return these packets in order to get credit for work completed. Please supervise that your child takes time to carefully finish the packets we started at school. Some of it has already been graded. These problems should be revised to show understanding of content. I will regrade them. This is Tuesday and Wednesday night’s homework for Math.

 
Thursday – None
 
Help your child develop those habits that will make them successful students and adults.
