What a great start to the school year!  Each of the students in grades 5 and 6 is creating personal letter logos that will be placed above each of their lockers. This project is our first combined math and art project for the year.  All 5th and 6th grade students should also be practicing their basic multiplication facts 0-12.  Research has shown that automatic recall of basic math facts allows the brain to have more available brain power which can be directed toward learning new ideas.  We will be TESTING BASIC MULTIPLICATION FACT SKILLS later this week and the week of September 12th.  Students, who do not meet minimum recall requirements of approximately 30 facts/2 minutes, will be practicing 5-10 minutes each morning before school starts with Mrs.Gronbeck until mastery is demonstrated.  Please remind your child to study and/or ask them to play a game of "Multiplication Challenge"!
