Everyday I am thankful that I work in such a wonderful school district. Today I was moved by the generosity and caring shown to me. My students and staff spoiled me with gifts. What is so special is the kids took the time to get me things that showed they knew me! I did not open the gifts at school, but I explained I put the gifts under my tree because they are special to me. Thank you to my students, their families and staff members for the Merry Christmas wishes. This is my tree!

The top students from each grade are now practicing during Bulldog Time. Of those students practicing, three students will complete in the tournament in February. There will be a final competition the week we return from winter break. Students who are truly interested in making it to the competition team should practice and prepare over winter break. In January I will be looking to select students to practice for several of the math competitions we will be participating in. Students will be given a placement test. Top scoring students will practice in January and February to compete. Here are some websites that have practice tests and problems for those who want to prepare and have made it their goal to be a Mathlete. http://www.mathcon.org/study/ http://purplecomet.org/welcome/practice https://www.artofproblemsolving.com/wiki/index.php/AMC_Problems_and_Solutions http://www.wismath.org/WMCMathContest http://www.mathleague.com/index.php/annualcontestinformation/samplecontests Sixth Grade MathCompleted chapter 4 and took the assessment.

Chapter 4 has several single skills that are matched with directions. It is important that your student knows what work and answers should look like for each set of directions. It will be the key to success on the next math test which will take place on Tuesday. For example, when asked to find the prime factorization, students should know that means their work should be factor tress and their final answer is all prime number with their exponents that were in the work they did. Please encourage your student to practice for their test over the weekend instead of waiting until Monday night. 7A Math Students have finished the last chapter needed for break and concluded the week with the assessment on that chapter. The chapter included graphing, direct variation, constants and slope. Next week we will review skills by participating in holiday math activities. 7B Math Students continued working through chapter 4. The students have finished the lessons for the chapter. We will review for the chapter assessment and have a chapter test on Wednesday of next week. Since all the sections have been learned, students can get a head start studying over the weekend. The assessment will be on proportions, similar figures, scale drawings, and rates/ratios. Algebra— Algebra is working on Chapter 6 systems of equations and graphing equations. Students will have a quiz next week and begin preparing for their semester exam. The exam is cumulative covering chapters 16. They have already learned 5.5 of the 7 chapters, so they should start preparing. Students should begin preparing their notecard over break. The notecards can have examples, formulas, steps to processes, vocabulary and anything that the student might want to reference for the exam. It needs to be hand written (student’s writing please) or typed and taped to the notecard. Eighth Grade Math Students have worked through chapter 2 on functions and graphs. Students found this chapter to be more time consuming than difficult and also found that details are very important when trying to get the correct solution. We will learn the final lesson of the chapter on Monday. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will review and have the assessment on Thursday. This will leave the students with no homework for winter break. Enjoy! Great job Lady Bulldogs! You did a great job representing our school. You worked hard and played hard. Nice 3rd place finish!
