Students have really maintained focus during the IOWA testing this past week. I am so proud of them!
Thursday folders have many grades in them this week. Please continue to review any graded work your child brings home in their Thursday folder. Also please make sure students are showing you their checkbook nightly, as they are expected to get a parent signature nightly.
The math book online textbook is an excellent resource for your students.

Sent home today was an Invention Convention sheet from Mrs. Melton. This is an experience that allows our students to participate in an innovative and unique science fair project. It is due Friday, November 11, 2016 if interested.
Also Math Team tryouts are quickly approaching. Tryouts are October 10th. If your student is interested in being on Math team, have them see Mrs. Jones for an application!
Please make sure your child is wearing the correct shoes to PE. Here is the PE blog to help them know which day to wear tennis shoes: http://acworthelem.typepad.com/kjackson/
