Our class is having a blast preparing for the Rocky River Fun Run coming up soon! Plus, we started learning how to “play with character” through the Fun Run’s character theme, Big World Recess. We’re traveling the world learning from REAL kid-athletes in other cultures.

Remember, as you connect to sponsors for the Fun Run, make sure all pledges are entered on funrun.com. The more pledges we get, the more incentives our class earns on our Pledge-O-Meter. Plus, for every $30 per lap our class pledges, a pair of shoes will be sent to a person in need in another country through the Great Shoe Takeoff giveback program. I know our students are excited to rise to the challenge!

Thank you for your generosity and supporting our school. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Food Drive

Please continue to send in canned goods to support families in need this Thanksgiving!

Report Cards

Report Cards came home last week. Please review your student's report card and sign and return the blue piece of paper. This indicates that you have seen your student's progress. Thank you!

Math Help

We are currently working on understanding the base ten foundation our number system is built on. Here is a video that will be helpful when you are helping your student with their homework this week.
