The Week of October 24, 2016

This week is shaping up to be a good one!  I have a number of fun lessons planned, and i'm excited to see where your research takes you!

Our math studies will continue to focus on ratios and proportions.  I'm going to show you how to use them to help you convert measurements.  We will work with both metric and customary measures.  Our lessons will include a lab where you will get hands-on experience with weight, length, and volume measures.  Use the following tables of measurement as you conduct your conversions.

You will have math homework to complete Monday and Tuesday evening.  You will also be required to complete a TenMarks assignment and a Google Classroom journal by Friday. You will have a quiz on measurement conversions Thursday.

Your science studies will allow you the opportunity to continue your research in ocean topography.  Please use your "Go Fish" choice sheet to help guide your research.  Your choices will be due Friday. On Friday you will also have a test on ocean topography.  Use your notes we took in class (that are found on the back of your vocabulary list) to prepare for this test.

Parent/teacher conferences have been reschedule because of Hurricane Matthew for this and next week.  I'm looking forward to meeting with your families!  Report cards will be sent home Wednesday.  You do NOT need to sign and return them because we will talk about them at our conference.  Please contact me via email ASAP if you forget your conference time or if you need to reschedule.

Finally, please note the following announcement from the GEP program:

The Ellis GEP students will be helping to serve the homeless community in Savannah by collecting supplies for the Emmaus House. Each day, the Emmaus House serves breakfast and lunch to people who are unable to provide for themselves. We would like to begin by providing supplies needed for serving food. If you are able, please begin sending in some of the following items and we will sort and deliver them Oct 25.

Plastic utensils
Paper plates
Paper bowls
Disposable coffee cups
Large aluminum trays/pans

There is a collection box located in the front foyer of Ellis.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Mr. Trent
