May 25th to 29th – Message to Parents and Students
It’s hard to believe it is the last week of May!
We will be meeting again this Thursday May 28.
Grade 7s at 10am and Grade 8s at 11am.
Please have a pencil and paper on hand.
Remember to check out the Len Wood Website for links to the Div 10 and 11 website, as well as all the other sites and information.
Students are being invited back to the school starting June 1. Please complete the survey to indicate if your child will be returning to the school. Mr. Matthews and Mrs. Mason will then create a schedule of when your child will be able to come to school and will let you know. We will have a maximum number of students allowed at the school each day, so please do not just show up. The class time will be there to support and continue the online learning activities. Students are asked to bring their own device and all materials they will need each day they attend school. More information available here: https://lwm.sd83.bc.ca/
As always, if you need any extra support in terms of food, technology, academics or just personal connection, please contact one of the adults on the team and we will be able to help you out.
Mrs. Mason, Mr. Matthews, Ms. Lane, Ms. Graf, Ms. Garraway and Ms. Crerar

This week the grade 7s will be reviewing percentages. In this lesson, students will define a percent and explore the relationships among fractions, decimals and percents. They conclude by solving some word problems involving percents. Students can follow along, watch the videos and complete the exercise questions.
This week the grade 8s will be reviewing percentage. In this lesson, students will be working on fractional percents and percents greater than 100 percent. Some focus is given to where percentages appear in everyday life and how estimation can be helpful when working with percentages.
