Team Announcements:
     Supply Check:  The second semester continures!  
      Is it time to restock some of your school
      supplies?  Do you have enough paper, pens, pencils,
      and checking pens?  Are there any other supplies that
      need to be restocked?  Please make sure you have all
      your supplies everyday!

     Zero Checklist:  Having no missing papers or
      zeroes in the gradebook is an important part of being
      successful in school.  Continuing this six weeks, we
      will be rewarding those of you who have no zeroes for
      the six weeks.  At the end of the six weeks, you will
      be given a "Zero Checklist" to take around to each of
      your classes.  Those who have no zeroes in any of
      their classes will receive a special reward.  Ask a
      Team J teacher for more details.  Keep working hard!

Math-
In 6th grade Academics, we will only be doing part of Chapter 7 at this time. We will come back and do the rest of Chapter 7 after the middle of April. The next chapter we will be looking at is Chapter 8, which is on Ratio's and Percents. These are tenative dates, but it looks like we will take the Midchapter Test for Chapter 8 on Feb. 4 and the Test on all of Chapter 8 sometime next six weeks.  The kids should have homework almost every night, and don't forget about the notebook check the last week of the six week.  Please make sure your child keeps all his or her papers in the appropriate section.

In 6th grade PreAp we will be taking a Midchapter test on Chapter 7 on the 26th of Jan.  The Chapter 7 test will be on Feb. 4. In Chapter 7, we are learning how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions, and how to use fractions in English measurements and geometry.  The last week of the six weeks we will begin Chapter 8, which is on Proportional Reasoning, and will be taking our notebook check. Please make sure that your child keeps all his or her papers in the appropriate section.

Thanks for all the continued support- it is really appreciated.
