A Note From Ms. Bancud regarding lunches: Ordering Website is now Active for the month of October. You may start ordering your child's lunches! Please make your child is under the correct grade, as there were many mistakes made for last month's ordering. The last day to order for October will be Wednesday, September 26th. After this date, our system closes and is unable to open for October ordering. All payments are due on Friday, October 6th. 

Cheque payments will not be accepted. If you choose the cheque option on the ordering site, it will be assumed that the payment is made through FreshBooks and you will be invoiced. 

Another item has been added to our Hot Lunch Program as a Special. This month's special is Shepherd's Pie that will be available every Friday!

SJA and Oakwood Academy are hosting a Welcome Back BBQ on Monday, October 2, from 4:00-5:30 PM. Order forms were sent home today and are due back by Wednesday, September 27th.

Friday, October 6 – October Hot Lunch payments due via Freshbooks


Today we learned about comparing, ordering, and representing numbers.

Standard Form is simply writing the number out in numbers (9361).
Written Form is writing it out in words (9361 = nine thousand, three hundred and sixty one).
Expanded Form is breaking up the number by using place value and + signs (9361 = 9000 + 300 + 60 + 1).

We also reviewed a place value chart.

Hundred Thousand

We also looked at ordering numbers and figuring out if some numbers were greater than, less than, or equal to. Remember the alligator mouth eats the bigger number (54 > 11, 2599 < 3001).
