Click HERE for Mary's final post! She has been a TERRIFIC guest blogger for the week!

Decimals are all around us and unfortunately, many mistakes can be made and be quite costly (monetarily and health-wise).

They had a great time and it was so informative for them with great practice to boot!

Students went to the garden with Mrs. Schleg!
Have a wonderful long weekend and enjoy your Labor Day! See you Tuesday for Resource Day!!!
