Unique Learning

The district has purchased us new Special Education Curriculum. Lessons will now be planned using Unique Learning Systems.


This month our unit focus on looking for animals, "I spy the animals at the zoo" and animal habitats.


This month our unit is titled "The Hot, Hot Sun". Throughout this unit students will explore energy from the Sun and how it affects different objects. Students will examine how heat and cold can change materials.


This month will focus on physical science concepts. The primary focus of this unit "Energy Around Us".

Friendly Reminder

As we slowly transition into spring, please make sure to send your child with weather appropriate clothing. We have recess mid-morning, and sometimes we have yet to hit the high for the day. Students often mention they are cold at recess. Please check the weather, and send hats, gloves and thick coat/jacket, as needed. It is also very helpful to label all of your child's outerwear with their name, as these items can easily be mixed up.
