EQAO has been scheduled for June 13th and 14th.
Please ensure that your child will be at school to write the standardized test (reschedule appointments if possible); this test will count towards your child's culminating task and so, their presence is very important.
The 'end' is near but our learning objectives are far from complete. Students are still required to learn Geometric Relationships, Measurement Relationships and Optimizing Measurements; this essentially translates into three chapters in five weeks. Please don't panic! Geometry and Measurement are units that are taught quite thoroughly in grade 8; several new concepts will be introduced, but the material is no where near as taxing as some of the algebra students have learned.
This does not however mean students can be 'relaxed' regarding homework completion and work habits; there is still A GREAT DEAL of material to be covered.
We're in the home stretch!!! Keep up the good work!
Math help sessions will continue every Wednesday during lunch in our classroom.
