Hello Math Families –

This week we will finish up Ch. 1, Ratios and Rates, with an assessment and then begin Ch. 2, Fractions, Decimals and Percents.  We will begin by looking at least common denominators, rational numbers and percent proportions.  Then, we will move into the relationship between percents, fractions and decimals.  To support your student, the “Real World Links” at the beginning of each lesson provide a great walk through of the concept. And, as always, Connect Ed has great videos.


Social Studies

We will begin Chapter 8, Facing Slavery. In this chapter students will learn about the Slave Trade from the West African perspective. In a series of real-life scenarios, students will discuss in small groups what they would do if faced with these dilemmas.



Inventions are due tomorrow. They will be displayed in the hallway for Catholic Schools Week.

Students will discover what makes producers important in an ecosystem. They will also learn how consumers get their energy.

Students will take an Ecology quiz on lessons 1 & 2 in their textbooks Feb. 4th. They will complete two study guides in class to help them prepare.



This week has been packed with spelling! We completed our in-class spelling be to see who will represent each class in the school-wide Spelling Bee next Tuesday! The most important aspect of our spelling bee was that all students were kind, accepting, and supportive of everyone’s great effort! We will have our lesson 10 Quiz tomorrow, January 25th.
