Recently letters were mailed from the District Office about a math opportunity for next year. If you haven't received it yet, you can view the letter here:

Orleans-Hannah Algebra Prognosis Letter

Next year there are three opportunities for math courses. If you have older children, keep reading as the choices were changed last year. The three courses are Course 1, Course 2 and Pre-Algebra. Here is the breakdown for the classes:

Course 1: A slower paced class which begins in 6th grade and finishes with Course 2 in 7th grade.

Course 2:  This course takes the curriculum of Course 1 and 2 and delivers it in one year.

Pre-Algebra:   Students in Pre-Algebra in 6th grade will be expected to pick up the concepts of Course 2 within the context of Algebra.  This is an accelerated class intended for students who are already performing at levels 3 and 4 in 5th grade.

While high school may seem far off, it's always great to be planning! The below table gives you an idea of what classes your child may take in high school based on what they take in middle school. 
The Orleans-Hanna Test is an assessment that tests a student's readiness for algebra. If you would like your student to take the test in March, please have the permission slip signed and returned to class by Friday, February 15th. 

Please let me know if you have questions!
