Week of October 12th


6th Grade Camp

Camp Cuyamaca is just a week away, and I AM SO EXCITED!!! Today, a packing supply list was sent home with your child so that you could have enough time to gather the necessary items.

Progress Reports

Progress Reports were sent home today. Please take a moment to review it with your child, sign, and return it with them next week.

Math Olympiad

Thank you so much to our fabulous parent volunteers for making our first day so successful! The kids had a fantastic time challenging each other and discussing problem solving strategies. This afternoon, your child is coming home with the challenge problems they did today, should you want to review it with them or simply want to see what they are being asked to do.
