Module #2 is a challenging unit and it is also a very short unit! The end-of-module assessment is scheduled for Tuesday, October 28th. Be sure to practice your conversions!

Student Council Elections

Posted by: | September 30, 2014 | 2 Comments |

This year we have several students interested in representing our class in the Tackan Student Council. Therefore we will need to have a class election.

If you are interested, please prepare a short but persuasive speech to give to our class this Friday. We will then all use anonymous ballots to choose the three people that we believe will represent our class the best!

Good luck to all of you!

Your child is coming home today with their current “Trending Book”.

This is the book that they have selected for themselves to read for the month of September.

It should go back and forth from school to home EVERY day. This is the book they must use for their 80 minutes of reading a week. They also brought home a Homework Reading Log. The log is due back on Mondays. This is also a book that they will use to read in class as well.
