Divide and Conquer


Fifth grade has been working on dividing decimals with 4 digit dividends and 2 digit divisors.  Today after the lesson, Carter wanted a more challenging problem because he felt like the ones we had been working on were too easy.  Of course, his teacher was more than happy to challenge him.  Carter worked several problems with 6 and 7 digit dividends and then finished off with a problem that had a  10 digit dividend and a two digit divisor!  He got every problem correct!  This is amazing work!  Way to go Carter!!

Who Grew My Soup?

Students in Ms. Pullens second grade class welcomed Mr. Clay Hawes from New Madrid Farm Bureau to read a book that centers around the character Phineas and his questions of Who, why and how his mothers choice for lunch was made.  The book called "Who Grew My Soup" takes Phin on an adventure to visit the many farms that are a integral part of making a delicious bowl of soup.  Afterwards Mr. Hawes, on behalf of NMFB, donated the book to the schools library for students to read on their own.  We can't thank Mr. Hawes and New Madrid Farm Bureau enough for their support of our district.

100 Days of Learning

February 1st marked an amazing milestone... It was the 100th Day of School!

Students and staff took time during the day not only to celebrate, but to learn all about the things they can do by the "100s"  From stringing 100 fruit loops on string to building towers with 100 cups, even making their own trail mix with 10 pieces of 10 different items to equal 100!!!  What is something you can do to 100? Do you have 100 bucket list things that you'd like to do?  We'd like to say 100 Thank You's to our parents, teachers and students for a great 100 days!
