Math 6-- We are working on multiplying fractions this week.  We are also changing from one customary unit to another.

English 6-- We will begin Chapter 14 on Wednesday.  It is about subject-verb agreement.

Vocabulary-- We are working on Unit 9. Since many students put off doing the unit until the last night, I will be assigning it in sections.  We will be done by Tuesday.  The spelling test will be Wednesday, January 28th.  The vocabulary test will be on Thursday, January 29th.

Social Studies 6--We will learn about the Maurya and Gupta Empires in India and begin reviewing for the test.  The test will be next week.


The seventh grade is reviewing for a quiz on multiplying and dividing integers on Thursday.  The test on this chapter will be on Friday.

7th grade pre-algebra is working on ratios, unit rates, complex fractions, and converting rates using dimensional analysis.

The Algebra class is beginning Ch. 7 on the laws of exponents.

The 5th grade is starting the chapter on adding and subtracting decimals.

 

THINGS TO REMEMBER:

This is Catholic Schools Week--check newsnotes for scheduled activities.

Please return report cards by this Friday.

Please send in a dessert for Cake Bingo on Friday.

Students may wear SMSA Rocks tshirts to the movie on Wednesday.

Please encourage your students to READ.

I am trying to encourage the students to be neater with their written work and also to be more conscientious about doing homework assignments.

 Please remind students to study a little each evening and not wait until the day before the test.

Also remind them of the importance of having homework done on time and done carefully.
