Halloween is coming!

on October 25, 2012

The leadership students have been busy planning and organizing a Halloween Dance. The dance will take place during school hours on Friday October 26 from 1:00 – 2:50. Students can purchase tickets in the front foyer for $3 or $2 with a non-perishable food donation that will go to our Me to We Social Justice group.  The theme of the dance is Orange and Black and we are discouraging students from wearing costumes to the dance.

Students can wear their costumes on Wednesday October 31 as long as it doesn’t interfere with their learning. We ask that students don’t bring face masks or weapons.

In my math class we have moved along to estimating sums and differences. All of the students understand the rule for rounding. We have a saying:

If it’s 5 or above, give it a shove ~ if it’s 4 or below, let it go. 

They understand to look at the digit next to the column that you are rounding in order to shove or let go!  We are now working on estimating sums and differences and students are getting the idea that this can be a useful tool in life (think money!)
