Class Challenge

This week we are taking donations to help a 2nd grade classroom in Beaumont, Texas that lost everything due to the flood a few weeks ago.   If possible, please donate $1 to go toward supplies this school needs.  If our classroom raises $20, Mrs. Rock will match our donation!  Thank you in advance for your your help!

Share your career!

We’re looking for a few good people…

Do you love what you do?  Does your job involve the use of any math skills?  Are you interested in sharing some details about your career with our 4th grade students?

We’re getting ready to begin a project-based learning unit that allows our students to discover the uses of math in the real world, and we are looking for some guest speakers to share some information about their careers.   We hope to host a Career Day on Tuesday, October 24 to introduce the students to a variety of professions that involve the use of math.  Each guest will be given 20-30 minutes to introduce his/her occupation, discuss its relationship with math, and have a short question & answer session.

If you (or someone you know) would be willing to share your job expertise, send me an email ([email protected]no later than Monday, October 9.  Please include your name, student connection, career, phone #, and preferred presentation time (morning 9:30-11:30 or afternoon 1:00-3:00).  We will get in touch with you once we determine a specific schedule.  Thank you for taking an interest in our students’ futures!

NO CAREER OR JOB IS TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL!
