CAS 5th & 6th grade students helped to set a new Guinness Book of World Record in Sport Stacking! Our school was among the 2,800 schools and 33 countries worldwide to participate in this event. Over a half million people were sport stacking on the same day (Nov. 14, 2013). The results are still being counted and I will let you know the final count once I am notified. I'M SO PROUD OF OUR STUDENTS !

WEEK OF 12/9/13:
Tuesday - Parts & Wholes Quiz
Wednesday - "Hour of Code" event (bring your own headphones intoschool!)
My website will be updated throughout the year, so you can find useful classroom information, upcoming events/tests/quizzes, homework and links to help you practice your math skills. I cannot stress enough how important it is for OUR TEAM to know their facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication & division). Think of practicing your facts, as drills during a sports (or dance) practice. Knowing your math facts will help you in 5th grade math class. So, keep practicing!!
We will continue using the Everyday Mathematics program in 5th grade, but will be incorporating our new Common Core Curriculum Standards into our lessons. As the school year progresses, I will be posting many websites that contain math-related games, skill building activities and homework help for students to use both at school and at home. So, I encourage you to check back often and click on the "Great Math Websites" link.
PARENTS- check out the link for information on the new math CCCS.
I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO A WINNING YEAR!
