Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

This week we are going to be continuing our daily math spiral review and mini assessments to check for understanding.  Also, we will begin ELA Spiral Review as we are only a couple of weeks away from the ELA CAASPP!

In addition, we are starting our final Eureka Math Module.  Students will be exploring different types of graphs and computing the mean, median, mode and range or data sets.

Open House is this Thursday.  It is a minimum day, so please make sure to set up dismissal arrangements for your Champions.  I am looking forward to seeing you all there.  Your Champion(s) have been working so hard on their assignments and I know they would love to show you everything they have been working on this year!

Please see the attached newsletter for more information about activities, assessments, and events occurring this week.

Thank you for all that you do to help and support your Champion(s).

This week we started Module 5.  This module covers various concepts of Geometry.  These include area, perimeter, and volume.  Champions will be learning various formulas for completing these concepts.  Champions should be reviewing and practicing these formulas nightly.

IXL is an excellent program for students to use that will continue to support concepts learned in class at home.  I encourage students spend a little time each night furthering their understanding of important concepts.
