IAR Testing
We will be taking the IAR Math tests on April 9, 10, and 11 during our regularly scheduled Math blocks. Students will need headphones and may bring gum or mints.

PARENT MATH RESOURCES now available on the Chelsea Webpage!
We have created a Parent Math Resources tab on the Chelsea Webpage. You can also access these resources under my Cool Links. Please also see the attachment for a Eureka Parent letter under "Downloads" that explains how to create a greatminds account. If you created an account last year, there is no need to create a new account this year. The parent letter also includes a brief explanation on how your child can access Zearn at home.
