Baxter's Bulletin

Forest View & Forest Lake Elementary

Welcome Back to School!

Dear Parents and Students,


I am excited to be able to teach math interventions again this year. This will be


my 5th year in the Forest Lake District supporting students in the area of math. I will


spend my mornings at Forest Lake working with 4th grade students and my afternoons


at Forest View working with K-3 students.



I have lived in the area for 21 years now with my husband and two daughters.


Jessica will be attending college this fall and Allison will be completing her junior year in


high school. In my free time, I enjoy spending time on the lakes just floating or


waterskiing at sunset.



I grew up in Dayton, MN and attended Anoka High School. I obtained my


Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota in Duluth


along with a minor in mathematics. Currently, I am completing my second year at


Concordia University in St. Paul to pursue my master's degree in Educational


Technology.



Last spring, I was honored to receive a technology grant from the Forest Lake


District in order to purchase three iPad to use with students during small group math


instruction. Each student uploaded various examples of learning onto their own website


which we refer to as an ePortfolio. This electronic portfolio is much like a scrapbook as


we can archive math related school work from year to year. I am looking forward to


sharing your child's ePortfolio with you during conferences this fall.



Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time if you have general questions


or specific concerns regarding your child's progress in math this year. I can be reached


by phone or email. I am also available before and after school if you would like to talk in


person.



Sincerely,


Mrs. Elizabeth Baxter

What do students need to learn in math this year?

Students learn specific math skills each year as they progress in understanding. As a teacher, I refer to this list of math skills often to make sure my lessons are on track to teach students what they need to learn. This list will be shared with students as they write weekly math goals. Ask your child to share their goals and discuss their progress.
