    Dates to Remember:

    January 24- Science Fair

    January 25- Regional Reading Fair

    MATH- This is a short week due to MLK holiday and science fair.  We will not start a new math topic due to the number of students that have been absent because of the flu.  We will use this week as a review/remediation week. 

    This week we will review Topic 8 "Coordinate Geometry." Students will take Topic 8 Test (G2) on Tuesday, January 22, 2019.  The remainder of week will be used to remediation.  Students will take Mad Min and divide decimal numbers by single digit number.  The next two weeks the students will have 7 minutes.
