Greetings Students and Parents,


During this month of Love, let us all try and remember the greatest love of all; the Love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We should all be showing His love to others.


During this month fifth grade will be statisticians.  The sixth grade is in the wonderful world of Algebra. The seventh graders are finishing up the basics of Geometry. Grade eight is looking into functions and polynomials.


We are all hopeful that the Spring Stock Market Game will bring better results than the fall game.  


Lastly as you are aware all Advanced Math students are registered and responsible for completing work through KhanAcademy. Please check the site and keep up with assignments. Assignments are now being graded on completeness. And as always NEVER spend more 40 minutes an evening on Advanced Math Homework.
