Veterans Day Performance
This Friday (11/10) our 4th graders will be inviting all parents and Veterans to come to school for a special Veterans Day performance! We will be offering 2 times for veterans and parents to come! The first time will be from 9:00-9:25 for 3-5th graders, parents, and veterans. The second time will be from 1:00-1:25 for K-2, parents, and veterans.
We also want to honor any veterans in your families or extended families in a slide show! If you could please email Natalie.email@example.com (the performing arts teacher) with 1 picture attachment and the following information:
Relationship to the student at RPE
Father of Natalie Meredith
If you e-mailed Mrs. Meredith this information last year, you do not need to send it again. She has all the pictures and information saved from last year!
Thank you and we hope to see you Friday!
Introducing Imagine Math
Students may access Imagine Math from home by using the link on my "Math Links" page or using this link.
Clever log-in: the first 8 letters of their last name_student ID
The password is their date of birth YYYY/MM/DD
Imagine Math's adaptive content helps students focus where they need - filling in missing skills or pushing on to new skills.
Students should be actively paying attention while they are using the Imagine Math content not just passively clicking through the program. To assist with this, I will be assigning each student a Imagine Math journal to take notes as they learn and to provide them a space for solving problems.
Students will have an opportunity to access IM at school, but they may need to also access the program from home to meet our class goal of each student completing 2-3 lessons per week.
