Converting Units of Measurements

5th graders learned how to convert using Customary Units and the Matric System. They also learned that in America, the “Conversion of Length, Capacity, and Weight/Mass” is done using both Customary Units and the Metric System. However, other countries primarily use the Metric System – Ms. Cooper.

A Character Challenge

” CMIT elementary has been given an opportunity to reward 2 lucky students in the 3rd through 5th grade, with a family pack of tickets to attend a wrestling event!  In order to be considered for this prize, you must choose to participate in a character challenge!

Students are to submit a writing about “what it means to be a good citizen and to lead with character”. This should be no less than 1 page, and it can describe ways in which you personally ROAR in our school and in your community, or it can explore someone you respect and recognize for their good citizenship and leadership!

We will read all entries and select the top 2 scholars’ submissions to be awarded the tickets! The show is next Saturday and so there isn’t much time! You MUST submit your entry by Wednesday, March 22 to Mrs. Green. So if this is something you are interested in, perhaps this weekend is the perfect time to get writing!

ALL submissions will be displayed in the school as part of our continuing support of one another in our character development!”
