Proportional Relationships Unit

Over the next few weeks in math your child will practice working with proportional relationships.  We are scheduled to take our vocabulary quiz Monday, December 7th, two ratio quizzes on December 11th and 17th, and our final test on Thursday, January 7th.  This week your child will receive a practice packet.  I will post the answer key for the even-numbered questions next week and will collect and grade the odd-numbered questions on Thursday, January 7th from all math 6 students.  In addition to the packet, your child has the textbook, Khan Academy, Quizlet, and many other resources to help them practice this important real-world skill.  You can find this information, a calendar of upcoming events, and links to resources on my math website at

Have a great day!

Activity Night Message from Mr. Peltz

We are hosting our second Troy Activity Night of the 2015-16 school year on Friday, December 4th. The evening will be a "kid only" event for Troy students only. There will be a DJ, basketball, "photo booth", concession stand, ping pong, crafts, bingo and the game room will be open. The cost is only $5.00. Kids may purchase a $5.00 food card at the door as well to spend at the concession stand (really helps the students from losing change and managing their money). Presale entry and food tickets will be available in the office starting Monday November 30th. Volunteers may bring their non-Troy students. Volunteers are to arrive at 5:45 and the doors will open at 6:00. The evening ends for 5th graders at 8:30 and for 6th graders at 8:45. We will need volunteers to work the concessions, chaperone the various activities and collect tickets at the door. Hope to see all the kids there! No child will be released early from the event unless they are picked up by their parent and all children must stay in the school building during the activity night. If your child is leaving early with a friend, please send in a note with a phone number.

Please consider volunteering and signing up to chaperone:
