Math Grade 6 – Students have 2 sheets to complete on “Understanding Small Numbers” and “Comparing Decimals”. Most finished the first one in class.
Language Arts – Students completed their first comprehension activity on chapter 1 of the novel Bridge to Terabithia. Their scores get emailed to their school email account. I score their responses on a rubric, and students should be attempting to achieve 9 out of 12 or better. Most scores were a bit low this time (which is not unusual this early in the year) as students are becoming aware of my expectations and also realizing that they may need to take more time when completing their responses. Check with your child on their results.
Chocolate Bar Campaign – The annual Parkdale chocolate bar campaign gets underway next Tuesday, September 25th. A notice went home today.
Grade 6 HPV Vaccine – A consent form went home with grade 6 students regarding the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). The first vaccine will take place on October 17th at 1:30 here at the school. The second dose will be administered in May. Please return the consent as soon as possible, but keep the orange information sheet.
