NEWS

1. Stormy/Rainy Week! Please keep umbrellas at home!

Looks like we are being blessed with a stormy/rainy week!


Please have children keep their umbrellas at home! They will not be needing it at school. We will be walking under a cover at all times.

2. Friday, 1/8--Natural History Museum Field Trip

Please submit the online permission slip as soon as possible! Thank you!

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

1. Khan Academy (OPTIONAL)

As a supplemental resource, I will be assigning Math work from khanacademy.org. This is a wonderful resource for students who would like more practice with the concepts taught at school or would like more challenging Math work.


The website adapts the questions based on each child's level. The more questions students answer correctly, the harder the problems will get. The program will also make problems easier if students are struggling with correctly answering the problems.


Please see below on how to sign up. This information will also be posted on our class site under "Parent Resources".


  1. Sign up at khanacademy.org (or log in with their existing accounts)
  2. Visit khanacademy.org/coaches
  3. There, in the "Add a coach" field, enter the class code XEEF4D
