Hello Wonderful Link Community!
In honor of today, the tax filing deadline, I thought it would be interesting to see a sample word problem that addresses the 6th grade math learning standards. This problem targets the student’s understanding of ratio concepts and requires computation with decimals.
In 2009 it was reported that 10.25 million people filed for a tax extension. There were 238 million tax returns filed in 2009. What percentage of people did not file for a tax return?
We’re proud of the work that our students are doing this year. Our staff challenges students on a daily basis to take mathematical concepts and apply them to real-life situations. Take some time this week to talk with your child about what they are learning in math. Maybe they can help you finish your taxes!
The Spring MAP Assessment window will run from April 21st through May 9th. Every student will take the reading and math portion. Attached is the testing schedule in efforts to avoid having your child miss school on the days their class is testing, as well as give you the opportunity to remind your child to do their absolute best.

Other families will need to go online to the D54 Campus Portal and complete the registration process, even if there are no changes. The online process will only take about 10-15 minutes. The final component of registration is sending in payment for the consumable materials fee, which can be sent to the main office.
