Weekly Update 

     We had a great Friday here at Hopkins. We enjoyed a special performance of Irish dancing.  The students were a great audience and the performances were amazing. 

     In math we are returning to multiplication and will be practicing computing double digit over double digit problems using the standard algorithm next week. This is the way most of us adults learned to multiply!  We will continue practicing this after the break. 

      In reading the students are organized into research teams and are investigating subtopics to a particular weather event.  They seem really engaged and are learning to make a plan for their research, take organized notes, and synthesize different types of texts.  

     Please help your student to remember to turn in their trimester two reading log.  We are asking that they turn them in by Wednesday the 22nd at the latest.  If your student has lost their log, just have them ask myself or Mrs. Ochs for a new one.

     Please remember there is no school Next Friday the 24th as teachers will be preparing student report cards.  Report cards will be sent home in backpacks on Friday April 7th.


Have a great weekend!
