Hello Parents of our Beloved Students,

Tropical Day is on Friday, February 15th. 

Students may come dressed as they would for a day on a tropical

island somewhere, and yes, shorts are OK!

Regular dress code rules are to be followed (no spaghetti straps, bathing suits,

mini skirts/dresses, ripped clothing, etc).  Pineapple pizza is being offered that day,

so please let Mrs. Sproul know if your student would

like pineapple pizza in place of their regular pizza order.

Valentine’s Day is coming!   Here is the plan:

The whole middle school will be bringing their lunches to my classroom on

Thursday, February 14th where we will have a mini-party with a Valentine

exchange and cupcakes.  Normally, the 7th and 8th graders don’t typically

exchange Valentines except with a few close friends. 

However, in 5th and 6th grade things are a little different. 

5th graders (and some 6th graders) still very much enjoy the process

of exchanging Valentines, and I want to give them that opportunity.

If a student in 5th or 6th grade wishes to bring Valentines, they should bring

Valentines for all the students of their gender.  So, girls should bring Valentines

for all of the girls in their homeroom and not exclude anyone, likewise with boys.

If a girl wishes to give a Valentine to a boy, she should give Valentines to all

of the boys, not just one, and likewise with boys.

I’m aiming for as much of a drama free Valentine’s Day as possible.

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Grant

Hello Middle School parents!

Today report cards for quarter two are coming home. 

Please note that there are two copies; one is for you to keep,

the other is for you to sign and return to us.  Inside the report

card envelope you’ll find your child’s 2nd Quarter Star Reader report.  

This report is an indicator of your child’s reading progress.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about this report;

questions about grades should be directed to the appropriate teacher.

Please remember that we are collecting several forms:

    One is for the PTFA meeting on Wednesday; I need that form by tomorrow.

    Another is for the winter formal; that form is due on Friday.

    Lastly, we need to know what food, if any, you’re ordering for your child

    during Spirit Week (January 28-February 1).

We need that form by Friday, January 25th.

I’m so proud of all of our students!

They are knuckling down and diligently working.

Two quarters down, two to go!

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Grant

Technology & Math Updates:

7th Grade. – we stayed on track even with the Snow Day, and we completed “Inequalities” last week.

We have started the chapter on Ratios, Proportion, Fractions, Decimals, and Percents.

The 7th Grade should (if no snow delays or snow days)

complete this chapter on Thursday January 31 with a test on Feb 1.

5th Grade – we fell behind with converting US customary units and with our Snow Day.

I wanted to make sure students REALLY understood how to convert the units, and metric as well.

We finish up Chapter 11 with our test tomorrow.

On Wednesday, we will start Chapter 7 (which we jumped over previously).

Chapter 7 is about fractions and decimals–how to find equivalent fractions or decimals,

how to reduce fractions down, what Greatest Common Factor and Least Common Multiple.

We should end this chapter on January 30 and have our test on Jan 31 (barring any snow days).

The 5th Grade has just recieved their Vacation Project (see below).

We’ll do part of this project in class, and I will be

helping the students utilize google slides and sheets

to help track expenditures for their family vacation.

This project is due in April.  The information for you as well as my grading rubric is below.

The students will be presenting the short week before

April Vacation (3 students per day).

Technology – 7th graders continue coding, and we’ll work on creating their own gif.

5th grade will be doing some slides and sheets to understand

how to utilize these important tools

(which will help the 5th grade with their math project).

 

In Christ’s Service,

Dear Parents,

 

There is paperwork coming home with your child today

that needs to be filled out and returned to TCS.

Then, I will bring it to Keene High School. 

 

The purple sheet puts your child in their system,

so the guidance department can sign them up for

classes once the course selection sheet is turned

in to them.  There is a release form which enables

the staff of KHS to talk to the staff at TCS in regards

to the students.  I will forward the records this summer

once we have final grades in and test scores.  The

3rd paper is just signing that you will report address

and family changes. 

 

On Tuesday, January 15th, a guidance counselor

and another staff member will meet with the students

who are zoned for KHS for 2019-2020.  They will explain

the course selection process and the Program of Studies

along with the course selection sheet will be given to them

at that time. Many classes require teacher recommendations,

which Mrs. Grant, Miss Martin, Mr.Evensen, and Mrs. Sproul

will make. 

 

January 22nd at 5:30 there is tour for parents who would like

to tour KHS and then the meeting for all 8th grade parents

in all schools begins at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium.

If you would like a tour, sign up on the link: 

http://khs.keeneschoolsnh.org/apps/news/article/970009

We look forward to working with you although some of 

you have been down this road already. 

Tours will be given at the end of March for the students.

Tuesday, June 4th at 6:00 p.m. –

They have a parent/student meeting for all those interested in sports.

 

Feel free to ask any questions you would like or bring forth any concerns.

 

Thank you,

Valery Curtis
