    It’s been fantastic meeting with all of you this week during conferences!  Hard to imagine that it’s been three years since our last round of in-person November meetings; it felt good to be one more step closer to “normal” these days.

    If your fifth grader is heading to Arden Middle School for sixth grade (or might be considering Arden), please note that there are some important upcoming dates.  On Thursday, 1 December there will be an Information Night at the middle school.  It runs from 6:00pm to 7:30pm and will offer a lot of helpful info.  After that, there will be two separate dates for Arden’s annual Visitation Day when students can visit the campus.  They’ll be on two consecutive Thursdays (8 December and 15 December) starting at 8:00am and ending at 10:00am each day.  You don’t have to be there the entire two hours; rather, it’s a time window and you’re welcome to arrive anytime between 8:00 and 10:00.  No apportionment is required.

    We’ve wrapped up our math unit on multiplying decimals and, after Thanksgiving Break, will move into learning how to divide decimals.  There are four main methods we’ll be going over, all based on if the dividends and divisors do or don’t have decimal points in them.  It’s a bit more involved than the multiplication of decimals, so we’ll be sure to do a lot of practice and review in class before we get to the Topic 7 test in the second week of December.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families, and I’ll see our students back in class on Monday, 28 November.
