A Look Into Some of Our Math Centers:

Spiral Math Review

You should be seeing your child's spiral math review coming home daily in their folder. We review these on Mondays only. They take their weekly check each Friday. Please review your child's work with them each night and help them correct any incorrect work. Thanks for your help!

Students may bring in money and purchase books during our class library time.

You are welcome to sign in at the office and shop with your child as well.

**You must have a background check on file in the office if you wish to shop during the school day with your child. You also must complete the anti-bullying training by watching this video from HSE’s website:http://www.hse.k12.in.us/ADM/parents/volunteering.aspx.**

Thank you to families who have allowed their kiddos to bring in change to raise money for class read alouds I will purchase at the Book Fair! Learning Clubs are "competing" against each other to see who can bring in the most money. Tuesday is the final day to send in your donations. Thank you for letting your kiddos dig through those couch cushions! :)
