TRA LA! IT’S MAY
The merry month of May
That lovely month where everyone goes blissfully astray
TRA LA IT’S HERE!
That shocking time of year
When . . .
Once again I am starting my May web-page with this quote from Camelot. Please help your child to stay on track and not go “blissfully astray” We still have so much to do this year.
To start with we will have our last set of Renaissance Testing. Again, although we don’t want any undue stress put upon the students, your children, please help them to understand that they should always be doing their best.
Grade Eight will continue to work with Quadratic equations.
Grade Seven will be putting scale factor into practice
Grade Six will start by displaying data.
Grade Five will be moving forward solving simple equations.
