What is Going On? MVMS Calendar




BLIZZARD BAG ASSIGNMENT- Students were given work for Lessons 6, 7, and 8. Students will be expected to complete the packet of lessons for the return of school. If they do not have the work with them, they can access the Open Up lessons online. (See below) We are in Unit 2. They can also watch the Khan Academy Videos online for Unit 2 Lessons 6,7 and 8. Thank you.

2018-2019 - Mathematics
My goal for mathematics this year is to share this curriculum that encourages discourse and engagement at all levels. Students should feel a productive struggle and self efficiency as they change their thinking and mind set around learning problem-based, real-world contexts. Students will construct arguments, use precise mathematical language and ultimately make connections between concepts previously learned and procedures for future learning. 

Open Up Illustrative Mathematics
Math materials reflect the balance of the standards. Materials set rigorous student expectations and supports families outside the classroom with productive mathematical conversations and resources to help enrich student learning.

MOUNT WASHINGTON CRUISE : 
The 2018 Sixth Grade Field Trip to the Mt.Washington Cruise was a success! 
We had 167 students and 123 parents join us for a fun filled day enjoying New Hampshire's beauty. We will plan the 2019 June field trip for a Friday in June. 
It is a great way to meet the parents of new friends. As soon as I have a date, I will be sure to let you know.

The Daily Schedule is detailed in "Important Information" on the left information bar.

Grading will be completed using formative and summative assessments which helps us to represent student learning with mastery and highlight strengths and skills more clearly. 
Common Core State Standards help to ensure that all students are consistently receiving high quality education and prepare students to be college and career ready.
NH-SAS -State Wide Assessments were given in the Spring to assess student learning.
