Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer): Happy Christmas break to you! Today is the last day of school for the year… well, at least for 2018. I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas time. And, I wish you a happy New Year!
Let me extend a big thank you to all of the families who donated to the 6th grade auction. The kids had a good time and some will be coming home with some nice gifts. I also want to thank the PTO for their help as well. The PTO gives us a budget each year for the auctions, and we were able to get quite a bit from their generous donation.
As we mentioned last week we are in the middle of our first pilot math program. We are piloting Eureka math with our unit in Ratios and Unit Rates. We will be continuing the unit to the end of January.
Dates to remember:
January 3 Welcome Back to students
For information on upcoming events you can see our calendar page from our website too. Please take some time each week to go on Skyward and see how your child is doing in school. This will help us work better as a team to know where your child is at, and where we may need some help.
Check out what is going on in the classroom. He also post what is going on on twitter through the Twitter handle @MrSingerClass. If you do not have Twitter, don’t worry, you can see the thread on the homepage of the class website.
Do not forget to register on Class Dojo to keep up-to-date with notes from the teachers, the behavior of your child, and more. If you need me to print another flyer, or send you an email invite, let me know.
BONUS: Each week we will put a challenge on here for any parent or student to try. All you have to do is give a response by Monday in the assignment notebook for us to see. If the answer is correct the student will receive $50 towards their checking account. Good Luck!
When we come back from break, let me know your favorite holiday cookie!
