5-8 Science and Math

Dear Parents,


     It is hard to believe that March is already upon us! Second trimester report cards went home this past Wednesday, so hopefully your child(ren) shared that with you. This has been a busy week in our classroom. In math, 5th grade has been learning about prime and composite numbers, making equivalent fractions, multiplying fractions, converting units of weight and mass, and they were also introduced to exponents and square roots. 6th grade has been learning about comparing fractions by first converting to decimal form, finding unstated information in fraction problems, capacity, how to find the area of triangles, and how to use a constant factor to solve ratio problems. 7th grade has learned about complex fractions, percentages of numbers, graphing inequalities, estimating areas, and transformations. 8th grade has been learning about finding the volume of cylinders and prisms, inequalities with negative coefficients, products of square roots, transforming formulas, and polynomials. 

     We have been studying the nitrogen, carbon, and water cycle, as well as respiration and photosynthesis in 5th and 6th grade science class. 7th and 8th grade science learned about fossils, paleontology, fossil fuels, and how to analyze all of that through a Biblical worldview. It has been a very productive week and I know the kids have worked hard and learned a lot!

      I also want to remind you that next week on Thursday, March 10th, St. Paul's will be having an open house from 5:00-7:00pm. If you know of anyone that is interested in sending their children to St. Paul's or just want to learn some more information about the school, please encourage them to attend our open house. I also encourage all of you to attend our open house, so that you can see what your children have been learning and even get registered for next school year. There is a discount for registering early! Also, if you have not yet signed up to bring cookies, brownies, or bottled water, I would encourage you to do so. We would love to make sure that there are plenty of treats for all who attend our open house. If you need another email sent about where to sign up, please just let me know and I will get another one sent out. 

     The PTL is also sponsoring our annual spaghetti fundraiser on Sunday, April 3rd. The dinner starts at 12:30, with a live auction starting at 1:30pm. We want to make this our biggest and best fundraiser, so if you know of any business or people that would like to donate items for our auction, please send them my way. 

     As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. 


In Christ,


Tara L. Griggs
