Dear Parents,

We have been very busy with math this trimester.  Students have been learning fractions.  This is not an easy concept, especially when you are comparing them.  We will keep plugging along.

We are finishing up our rocks and minerals unit over the next week.   Students will use the data they collected to identify minerals in a collection.  Then we will have a unit test the last week of March.

Writing has become our sole focus point the last few months.  Students are learning how to craft a strong extended response to literature.  The students have come a long way.

The NYS ELA Assessment is the last week in March.  Students are well prepared.  The test is not easy, in fact it is extremely challenging.  Students will do their best, that is for sure.

Yours in education,

Mr. Blanchet
