Subject Updates:

Social Studies: Students are working on the "Grade 5 Elections". So far candidates have made their initial campaign speeches. We are now looking forward to press conferences from candidates, news reports on the election, and supporting campaign ads/skits.

Language: We are continuing our work with speeches. Not only will we incorporate our learning in the Social Studies Elections, but also in our preparation for the Annual Speech Competition.

Math:  We concluded Chapter 8 (Area and Grids) and we will have our chapter test on Tuesday, March 31st. Students should review Lessons 1, 4, 5, and 7. 
Next week inshaAllah, we will start Chapter 7: 2-D Geometry.
