Fraction Operation

posted Mar 8, 2018, 11:33 AM by Nickie King   [ updated Mar 8, 2018, 11:36 AM ]

Mrs. Anderson's 4th grade math class were in the operating room today! Students were given the task to glove up and operate on their patient, "Workspace" to solve multiple fraction problems. Fraction problems consisted of adding and subtracting mixed numbers with like denominators, turning improper fractions back into mixed numbers, and taking mixed numbers and turning them into improper fractions. The 4th graders loved learning about fractions in a fun, new way!

Attendance & Excuses

posted May 15, 2017, 5:49 AM by Nickie King   [ updated Feb 28, 2018, 11:07 AM ]

Per the SCDE, a pupil is counted absent if he/she is not present for greater than 50% of the school day.  The actual calculation (done automatically by PowerSchool) is based on the minutes covered in a school's bell schedule.

A student who misses school must present a written excuse within three (3) days after the student returns to school.  If your child was absent but did not go to the doctor, we still need a written excuse signed by a parent/legal guardian, stating why the child was absent.  

Make sure the excuse contains the following information:
    *    date(s) student was absent
    *    student's first and last name
    *    teacher's name

The requirements also apply to tardies and early dismissals.
