✖️➕➖➗MATH FACTS✖️➕➖➗

Our math classrooms are putting a focus on building fact fluency and you may have already seen practice pages and/or activities coming home for your student to practice. Please help us to encourage our scholars to build their fact fluency, the ability to recall basic math facts quickly, accurately, and effortlessly, to grow them as mathematicians.

Any K-6th grade student wearing a city soccer jersey (current or last year) or a pre athletic student in their "future hornet" shirt will get in free.
