Past the Halfway Point

Parents and guardians,

We have passed the official halfway point of the year - wow! Quarter two report cards will go home this Thursday, February 4, but we are officially in quarter three and in chapter 9 right now. Chapter 9 is a geometry-based chapter (as was chapter 8) which many kids love for the visual aspect. The chapter 9 test on surface area and volume is scheduled for this Friday, February 5. A reminder that I am now available after school on Wednesdays and Thursdays (previously Tuesdays and Thursdays). I'm also available for extra help Wednesdays during lunch.

What you can do at home: Ask your child about pi. One of the most famous numbers in the world. They should know it's approximate numerical value and where it appears around us in our universe. Here is an interesting video on the number: A Mile of Pi.

Thanks for reading!
Ms. Vila
