- Field trip:
We have been given the opportunity to attend a performance done by Ballet Folklorico THIS FRIDAY, September, 21. The performance will take place at the RRISD Performing Arts Center. We realize it is a quick turn-around, however, this is an incredible multi-cultural experience for our students. Permission slips are coming home MONDAY. Please return the permission slip Tuesday if possible.

This Week We Are Learning:
- Math: This week we will continue reviewing addition with fractions. Students will focus on deciding which strategy to use when making calculations and verifying that an answer is reasonable. We will practice this with word problems and problem solving examples.
- Science: We are continuing our unit on mixtures and solutions. Students know that mixtures keep there physical properties and can be easily separated and solutions can be separated but not easily and do not keep their physical properties. This week we will focus on how identifying evidence that shows that a solution is a unique type of mixture and exploring tools and processes that we can use to separate a substance. Students also received vocabulary words associated with this unit and will have a quiz this Friday. Our unit test will be next week (date TBD)!
