    Every year SJUSD asks families, students, and staff to complete surveys in order to get a sense of the community’s pulse.  Students took their on-line surveys in class last week, and the hardcopy adult surveys went home this past Tuesday.  The district always appreciates your feedback, so if you could take a few moments to reflect your thoughts on the survey, that would be fantastic.  They can be sent back in to the school with your student any day up through 4 March.

    Mariemont’s dinner/auction is slated for Saturday, 2 April this year.  The venue will be Haggis Oaks and there are still volunteer positions available if you’re interested in lending a hand in some capacity.  You can view the help our PTA still needs by checking out this form.  If you have any questions, you can email the PTA here.

    Our current focus in math is on adding and subtracting fractions.  Rather than interacting with common denominators, though, we’re working with problems that feature fractions with uncommon denominators.  We’re learning the process of how to find a like denominator between two fractions so they can be properly added or subtracted.  On top of that, any fraction that can be reduced (simplified) needs to be reduced as the final answer.  There are a lot of moving components in doing these problems, so we’ll be doing plenty of in-class work and practice.  If your student would like some at-home review work, they can use this link to Khan Academy.  The problems begin with common denominator review, and then move on to uncommon denominators (if they’d like, they can scroll down to bypass the common denominators).
