The Week of February 16, 2015.

Our upcoming week is a tad shorter than normal....you get Monday off to celebrate Presidents' Day!  While you are enjoying some much deserved time off, I will be at Ellis preparing another great week for you!

When you return on Tuesday, we will start our studies of statistics in math.  Our first focus in this domain of math will be mean, median, mode, and range.  Be looking forward to a number of mini-games we will play to gather data to use to practice these skills.  In addition, check out this fun activity that is all about mean, median, mode, and range:
