Congratulations Jarrod for winning 1st Place at the Split Arrow Archery Club in Rexton. ...

Wow, the last week in January...this month flew right by. I hope everyone had a great weekend. The Arcademic Cup take places this week on Thursday and Friday.  To get points for the Cup you have to play Grand Prix Multiplication during these two days.  We will devote some school time for this and if you have an opportunity to play at home that will help you get more points too!  We are going to plan to skate again on Thursday afternoon if the weather and rink conditions permit.

Math - This week we will learn how to double the 3 times table to get answers for th 6 times table. We will also be learning what multiples are and we will continue learning how to multiply two digit numbers by a one digit number.
