The annual 6th grade fishing trip is on Tuesday
May 2. We will be leaving the school at 8:30 am to travel to the
IDFG Hagerman Hatchery, which is 43 miles from the middle school. On May 2 we
will tour the hatchery, go for a nature hike, fish, learn how to clean, fillet,
and cook trout as well as release the fish we have been raising from eggs in
our classroom tank. Students will need to dress appropriately for the
weather KMS dress code still applies, close toed shoes for hiking, sunscreen, a
hat, water, a sack lunch and a bag to carry their things. Students will be
allowed to keep their catch and may be bringing trout home for dinner. We will
be back at the middle school by 3:00 pm allowing students to take their usual
routes home after school.
Parent Chaperones are needed for the fishing trip. Please contact Mrs. Anderson if you are interested!

Today your student
reviewed their Decimal Quiz and corrected any missed questions, and they also
had a Journal Check. Tuesday we will
review algebra with the introduction of a Function Table. For the remainder of the week we will
continue to review basic algebra concepts and other math concepts that they
will see on the ISAT exam next Monday.
This week in math, we will be continuing our work with data. We will be
learning about a 5 number summary, a box and whisker plot, and we may get to
work with the MAD (mean absolute deviation) of the data. We never did have
homework last week, so I'm sorry if it caused confusion, but there will be
homework on Tuesday night.
Friday we will go over the tools for the math ISAT, which will be given
on Monday, May 1st, in the morning. Please make sure your student gets a good
night's sleep Sunday night, and has a good breakfast Monday morning. We will
provide some snacks for them before they take the test. I also talked to them
about "Dressing for Success," and told them how it makes a person
feel better, and more successful, when they are dressed their best.
However, they come to school, I want to tell you how proud I am of the
work each student has done this year! It doesn't always show up in test scores,
or grades for that matter, but they are showing up and doing their best. That
is all anyone can ask of another person! Thank you for allowing me to work with
your students, it is an honor to be their teacher!
