A note from the nurse
From the Health Office:
Winter is the time when many students do not drink as much water as they do when it is warm…which results in many chapped lips! Please send some Chapstick in with your child so he/she can keep their lips moist during the day. Also, please continue to send water bottles as drinking plenty of water is just as important in the winter. Thank you!

Mrs. Price's Math Class by Haden
*A note from Mrs. Price - For this unit in math the class is using the Envision math program which is on the Chromebook. There are many options available within this program. The practice buddy homework is done right on the Chromebook. One of the nice options for this way to do the homework is the fact that when a child gets a problem wrong they then complete another similar problem. They also have videos and other tools to use right on the document that they can use to solve the problems. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
