    NO SCHOOL for Fall Break is October 18th-22nd


    Math: We will do Saxon lesson 22-25, and Friday we will be taking our cummulative quiz #3.  We will begin looking more into fractions and division.

    Reading: We will begin reading about Animal Adaptations and continue our reading groups focusing on specific skills.  We will continue our class book called Alvin Ho. Please make sure your child is reading at least 20 minutes a night to practice their reading and comprehension skills!

    Writing: We will begin written responses (including RACE) on our Animal Adaptations and start thiking about the big project of this quarter.  We will continue to do our weekly spelling, grammar, and vocabulary.  

    Social Studies/Science: We will continue to work on Colorado History, chapters 3-5 focusing on economy and the Great Depression!

    Wearing MasksExtra Information: We have a MASK MANDATE and will require all students, adults, and visitors to CCA to wear a mask while indoors.  

    Powerschool check-in papers are now going home EVERY weekend to go over, sign, and return to help your child be the most successful student they can be!  

    Parents, please know it is a struggle when your child misses school (even being tardy or pulled out early).  As long as they are not sick, please send them as it is very difficult to catch up on about 6 hours of instructional time and directions. We appreciate your support in this!

    PLEASE be at the bottom of the hill by 3:15pm for pick-up BEFORE the 7th grade parents WITH the green sign showing in your car.  This will speed up the dismissal process.

    Homework:  This week will have a fiction reading on The Talent Show, and the reading packet is due on FRIDAY, independent reading at least 20 minutes nightly, Saxon math lessons on provided math box paper with multiplication practice, and a spelling test on Friday.

    This week we will finish our parody project.  We will become familiar with monochromatic color schemes as we create our coins in colors to represent the metal finishes.  We will layer color to create darker and lighter values of our gray, yellow/gold, or orange/copper.  We will select an additional color and layer to create a monochromatic stamp as well.  I hope that everyone enjoys a safe, relaxing and rejuvenating fall break!
