Parent Survey


As the school year is coming to a close I would like to thank you all for your support in the educational progress of your child. Your children have shown tremendous growth in math and I know it would not have been possible without your steady support and at home.

In order for me to continue to grow as an educator it would be very helpful if you could answer the following questions about your child’s school experience this year.

Thank you in advance,
Sarah Dees

Here's the link to the survey:

(Students will have a separate quiz that is taken tomorrow in class.)

Pre-Algebra Update

In Pre-Algebra, we have been experimenting with a new way to learn.  Using iPads, iPods, and iPhones we have used an app, NearPod.  If you have a student in Pre-Algebra, ask them about this experience. We have had the usual problems with new technology, but have worked through them and had a great learning experience.  

Here are some pictures of students hard at work in the classroom:

Here's the Slope diagram for Pre-Algebra. Students wanted me to share this.'s a fun video from Flocabulary, a rap song, about linear functions and writing equations. Maybe it will get stuck in your head and help you on your test on Friday.
