Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing summer! We will be hitting the ground running this year. Look for your child to bring home their syllabus Monday. Please review and sign this document with your child. I look forward to getting back into the groove with all the students!
6th grade will begin the year with module 1 and the study of ratios and ratio relationships. Please encourage your students to show you their module books including classwork and homework. The new curriculum is challenging all students to think beyond just a solution with explanations of processes.
7th grade will also begin the year learning about proportional and rate relationships. Students should not be using calculators on their homework and should be showing all work to solve complex problems.
8th grade 3rd hour students will spend August on some of the 8th grade geometry standards. With changes to the Kansas State Standards in 2017, most of these are included in the 7th grade curriculum, so we will pick up where we left off there last year.
8th grade algebra students will review expressions, equations and functions within basic algebra concepts.
