What's New This Week?

Nor'Wester Readers

Last week we received a thank you letter from Nor'wester Readers for our basket donation. Below is an excerpt from their letter:


"On behalf of the Nor'wester Readers Canine Assisted Learning Program organization, we wish to express our deep gratitude for your generaous 2015 Dog Walk and Family Fair donation of the Ice Cream Sundae raffle basket. It is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!"


I hope to see you this upcoming Saturday for the mini walk and fun!

Math

ENVISIONS MATH
This week we will review and take our Topic 15 Time assessment on Wednesday. Our next topic is on numbers and patterns to 1,000. This is a lengthy topic, and we will be working with place value to the hundreds place, reading & writing numbers to 1,000, comparing numbers, patterns on a hundreds chart, and ordering numbers.


FIRST IN MATH

I have noticed a slip in the number of students participating in this wonderful online activity, and unfortunately there is no weekly winner from last week because no students participated. Please encourage and allow your child to spend a few minutes each week on your home computer and help him/her to strengthen math skills on different levels. Thank you! www.firstinmath.com
