What are we going to do to celebrate Pi Day? What do you use Pi for? Tell me anything else you'd like to about Pi. This extra credit assignment is to be turned in by February 15th. You may type this paragraph for 1 extra, extra credit point. If you are the only one to turn this extra credit paragraph in, I will give you 5 extra, extra, extra credit points.


We are playing a game. We had to pass the foil ball around. When the music stopped, whoever had the ball had to peel off a layer of foil and eat what was listed. Some of the stuff we had to eat so we could win a prize was mustard, white vinegar, Vienna Sausages, onion powder, cottage cheese, strawberries and chocolate kisses. If you what you saw, you won a prize!

We are enjoying all this wonderful food. Our Valentine party moms did a great job!

Mrs. Swenson and Mrs. Matthews are busy getting our wonderful Valentine's Day party started. They are passing out yummy treats for us to enjoy!

We've settled back in after our unexpected "snow" break. In Math 5 we are reviewing long division. Our Practice Chapter 4 Test will be on Monday, February 8th and the final test for those students that need to take it will be on Tuesday, February 9th.

Math 6 students are working on multiplying fractions, whole numbers, and mixed numbers. Students are mastering this skill and can solve 4 fraction/mixed number multiplication problems.

In Grammar we are finishing our paragraph about Abe Lincoln. We will be typing these papers and displaying them in the hall. Please stop by and take a look! We finished our class read of "The Celery Stalks at Midnight". All the children have taken their A.R. test and have gotten some or all credit for this book.

Remember, Sunday, February 7th is our Open House at the Academy. Invite friends and neighbors to take a peek at our school and see the wonderful things we are doing there!
