  Accelerated Reader/Accelerated Math
On Thursday, March 16, I attached two papers to your child's Behavior Report.  The first is a list of all the Accelerated Reader books your child read and tested on during the 2nd trimester.  Just to give you an idea, the lowest was a student who read less than 10 books.  The highest was a student who read over 60 books.  The second paper deals with Accelerated Math.  It gives you an idea of how many objectives your child has mastered.  There are a total of 90 objectives.  Your child can work on Accelerated Math by logging on through Home Connect.  I already taught the students how to do this but they can ask for help if they've forgotten.   The username and password is the same as it is for Renaissance Place.
We have completed Chapter 8.  Your child's test will be returned Thursday, April 27.
We are now working on Chapter 9 which includes bar graphs, pictographs, and tally marks.  We will be done with this chapter soon and will be testing the first week of May. 
 Parents, please make sure to take your children to Pizza Hut so their coupons can be redeemed!  
All tickets will expire on May 1, 2017.

   Now that our class is 1:1 with Chromebooks, it is important that every student has a pair of headphones because the school does not supply headphones with each Chromebook.  We still have a few students that do not have a pair and many of the headphones I purchased are no longer working.   If possible, please send a pair of headphones/earbuds to school with your child.   Place them in a bag with their name and I will keep them in a safe place until they are needed.  Donations of headphones would also be greatly appreciated.
The sixth grade team usually sells popsicles for $1.00 after school on Wednesdays. They set up a table on the north side of the cafeteria.
