Mrs. Cullum’s 7th grade math class collected data to help choose the new Playground Equipment Color by polling students in grades K-12. Color choices were between a) black, yellow, with blue or b) black, yellow, with red. They tabulated the data, wrote ratios, calculated percentage, and made bar graphs using the data. Questions to ask: 1) What is the ratio of blue votes to total votes. 2) What percent of the votes did blue receive? 3) How did they calculate that percentage?

The 3rd graders have been learning about the Oregon Trail in social studies. Today they worked in teams to do a web quest about the Oregon Trail. Everyone showed great teamwork and they came up with the best process for their team to research on their iPads to find the answers to their questions. Ask your student: Where did the Oregon Trail begin and end? What two animals did most settlers use to pull their wagons?

Good morning! School will start on-time on Wednesday, January 5th. Highways are clear for the most part and plows are out. Please use caution when crossing the canal bridges as they do still have snow on them, but there is a passable lane at this time. School parking lot and loop are being cleared. Thank you, Joi, for showing up extra early! Gravel roads that are narrow and sheltered have some drifts. Please communicate with your bus driver if they will have trouble getting to you. Drive careful and allow yourself extra time getting to school this morning!
