Math 5: We are working in Module 2 which focuses on multiplication of multi-digit numbers including decimal numbers. Students are using their understanding of place value to find shortcuts and mental math strategies for multiplying large numbers. We will be having more frequent assessments this trimester. Please expect an assessment every 2 weeks or so. Quizzes will be announced on Google Classroom.
Math 6: We are finishing Module 1 in Math 6 focusing on percents as ratios and fluency in percent, decimal, and fraction equivalents. This trimester, we will be having more frequent assessments approximately every two weeks. Please check Google Classroom for assignments and assessment dates.
If your student has not yet mastered the multiplication facts, daily work on Quicktables in ALEKS is necessary. Success in math is hindered without easy recall of these facts.
The 6th-grade class will be presenting The Apparitions of Our Lady of Guadalupe after Mass on Wednesday, December 12. (The 5th grade will be our choir for this performance.) Costumes have been sent home for cleaning and ironing. Please check with your child about their costume. Help in sprucing up these costumes is much appreciated. Students will change into their costumes after Mass on the 12th.
We have begun our unit on Church History and are focusing on the early church. Google Classroom is a great help in keeping up with assignments. Please ensure that your student is checking our Religion ⅞ Classroom regularly.
