Kim Kieschnick, our representative from Reasoning Mind, came to visit us on Tuesday. Every time she comes she is so impressed with how well our students behave. She is equally impressed with what great mathematicians she sees using her program. In the past, British Petroleum paid for Reasoning Mind for every 3rd and 4th grader in the district. Due to budget cuts, they stopped buying the program for our district. We approached Reasoning Mind and asked if we could be an advertisement for Reasoning Mind by allowing other schools to visit and see how it works and why it has been so successful for our school. We so appreciate RM for giving us one more year to use their program. Our students score very high in math-we credit it to great teachers and great resources like Reasoning Mind. You should be very proud of your children-their excellence is noticed by visitors to our school. We certainly are very proud of all of them!

Yearbooks are on sale. They will $21 until March 10th. After March 10th they will be $25.00.

First grade will be going to see the play, Biscuit, on March 7th. Their $4.00 is due by Friday, February 24th.

We have two weeks until Spring Break, March 13th-17th. Please help your child stay focused on school until then. Third and fourth graders are reviewing and learning new skills they will need to know for their big test. 1st and 2nd graders are reviewing and learning new things to help them be prepared for 2nd and 3rd grade. It is very important that they are well, on time, and ready for each day. The role you play in their education is the number one key to their success. Thanks for being such great families to our kids.

Unfortunately the flu is going around our town. Please remind your children to eat right, get plenty of rest, and wash their hands frequently. If your child has fever, vomiting, or diarrhea please take them to the doctor and keep them home. You will have a doctor's note and their absence will be excused. We don't want to be sick and we don't want to spread sickness.
