The Week of March 16, 2015

St. Patrick's Day is almost here!  Our beautiful city really shines during this exciting celebration.  I hope that you get a change to have some fun on your day off Tuesday!

This week marks the first day of the final term of the school year.  I can't believe how fast this year has gone!  We will spend most of this term reviewing our research we've conducted throughout the year.  Use this time to reflect on what you've done, brush up on concepts that require a bit more clarification, and share your knowledge with your classmates.  Each week until the GMAS test, we will have a review focus in both math and science.  This week we will focus on "the number system" in math and "geology" in science.  You will have review homework in your "Putting It All Together" booklet to complete Monday and Wednesday night.  On Thursday, you will have a quiz on the number system.  It will include computation of decimals, fractions, and GCF/LCM.  Update:  You will not have math homework or a math quiz this week...all math work will be done in class and graded as "classwork".  Please complete you weekly Compass Learning assignment by Friday.

In science, we will continue with our studies of the universe with a focus on stars and other small bodies in outer space.  Here is a copy of your class notes and vocabulary words. You will have a vocabulary quiz on Friday, and a test next Friday.

Use this choice sheet to help you keep focused on your work with the above concepts.  Your three choices are due next Friday, March 27.

This Friday, be sure to wear a smile because it is school picture day!  You will get your individual picture taken as well as a picture with all your classmates.  More information and an order form for the class picture was placed in your mailbox.  Please bring any class picture money to school by Friday.

I'll see you Monday,
Mr. Trent
