Mrs. Kathleen Taylor

Welcome to Math Class!

We have finished the first marking period.  I have truly enjoyed getting to know your sons and daughters.  It has been a wonderful beginning to the school year and I am excited for the second marking period.  

Math 6 will be starting Chapter 3 - Decimals.  Students are anxious to begin our unit on decimals.

Pre-Algebra is finishing up Chapter 3 on solving equations and inequalities. Students are working hard and getting ready for their Chapter 3 Common Assessment.  We will begin Chapter 4 the week of Thanskgiving.

I hope everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable holiday season!

It's time to return to school.  I hope everyone has had a relaxing and enjoyable summer vacation. There are a few things you will need for Math class this year.  They include a  notebook (used for math only), a folder, and several pencils. Come to class with an eagerness to learn and a good attitude and we will have a great year!
