“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments

Dear Parents,

In math last week, (Module 3:  Multiplication and Division with Units of 0, 1, 6 - 9, and Multiples of 10),  we interpreted the unknown in multiplication to model and solve problems using units of 6 and 7.  This week, we will understand the function of parentheses and apply to solving problems.  The students are learning that parentheses are tools for grouping.  They will be decomposing to make problems using units up to 8 easier to solve.
8 x 5 = (4 x 2) x 5
= 4 x (2 x 5)
= 4 x 10

In social studies, we have been learning about the Native Americans of the Great Plains.  Have you asked your 3rd grader to tell you about some of our stories?  (Ask about A Boy Called Slow--The True Story of Sitting Bull; Dream Wolf and other stories by Paul Goble.)

Mrs. Marshall

*Rain or shine, students need to wear the full uniform to school.  That includes OLL sweatshirts, OLL sweaters, OLL vests, or OLL fleece.

*Remember that our PE classes are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and require appropriate shoes.  (No boots)
