This week in math we are multiplying decimals. We will model and estimate multiplying a whole number by a decimal and decimal by a decimal.  Some were struggling with whole numbers last week.  In 4th grade multiplying a 2 digit by a 2 digit should have been mastered.  We add a 3 digit by 2 digit in 5th grade.  I am seeing a need to pull out and review those multiplication facts.  You child can also go on line to Khan Academy or Mathantics for additional resource.  I also have resources on this website. We will test on multiplication Tuesday, October 17th.

***GIFT CARD DRIVE BEGINS TUES., SEPT. 5th***

Our Creekview family needs our help. While some of us were very fortunate, Hurricane Harvey flooded so many of the homes of our friends and neighbors. In an effort to help them get started with repairs and rebuilding, we are going to have a gift card drive beginning Tuesday and extending for the next 2 weeks.
Some examples of gift cards that would be helpful are Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Ace, HEB, Kroger, and any of our local restaurant gift cards. Your thoughtfulness for our families is greatly appreciated.

 Here are a few FAQs.

 Has the survey link been emailed already?

Yes, the email with the link was sent on Wednesday, May 17 and Thursday, May 18. Please check your junk mail for an email from Panorama Education.

My survey link did not work. What do I do?
