Parent Notes


THESE IS ONLY MATH FOR HOMEWORK ON MONDAY NIGHT THIS WEEK! THEY WILL NEED TO DO IT ON THE EDPUZZLE APP ON THEIR IPADS. ON THE OTHER NIGHTS YOUR CHILD CAN LISTEN TO AND WATCH THE COINS COUNTING SONGS ON GOOGLE CLASSROOM. WE ARE CONTINUING TO LEARN ABOUT COUNTING COINS. THIS TAKES A LOT OF PRACTICE OVER TIME. PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRACTICE THIS SKILL AT HOME.


Please remember to charge you child's iPad at home each night. We use the iPad a lot at school and it is difficult when the iPad has limited charge or no charge.


PLEASE SAVE THESE DATES:

Friday, May 20th! We will have our parent program at school. All parents/families are encouraged to attend. Our program will be at 12:45 and will last about an hour.


Friday, June 3rd! Our annual field trip to the MN Zoo. We encourage all families to join us for the trip to the zoo at a greatly discounted admission price. Siblings (not current Middleton students) are encouraged to join us. This is an all day trip. I Sent a survey out to all families about the trip.
