Ten Marks for Math

I hope you've all enjoyed learning about TenMarks this week.  Letters are going home today to let your parents know what it's all about.

Some of you asked if you could bring in your own headphones to use in class when we do TenMarks.  That is fine with me, but you need permission from your parents first.

I'm looking forward to seeing how well you do on all of your TenMarks assignments this year!!!

Have fun working!
Mrs. Stantial
