Mr Sparico is out sick today.  The +/- fraction quiz has been moved to Monday.  Students started two review packets Thursday with me in class, finding and fixing errors as needed.   Both review packets are being sent home today to be completed/used as a study tool.  Both will be collected and taken as a quiz grade on monday.  Use notebook.  Please help your child prepare for this assessment.  It will be challenging.

Happy 100th Day of School!

LCES 5th Graders will celebrate the 100th day of school today (2/3/15) by creating a 100 link chain highlighting all off the prime and composite #’s from 1-100.  Ask them about it when they get home.  They should be able to tell you all about it.  If not, please help them memorize the four divisibility rules and “exceptions”.  

It’s not hard, they just need to take their time

& use what they were taught.
