    Following is a brief description of this week's studies by grade.  If you have any questions about any of your student's Math homework please contact me at school.  
     
    We have been working with online homework with the new series for a couple of weeks and things seem to be going well.  There are only a few students with issues with homework online.  If this is your student and you have any questions, please let me know.
