Mrs. Kumaran came in and spoke about "Engineering and how Chips are made." We are so lucky to have expert parents at our school. Please let me know if you can come in and speak to the class.What are you an expert in? We want to know! Our kids will remember this for the rest of their lives! Especially your own kids!


We are needing another bag of M and M's and Skittles for this week and next. (It helps them with visual representation while learning their multiplication and division examples)

We will also be needing a box of Cookie Crisp cereal that will also be used as a division model representation.

Please let me know if you can donate.

The wellness committee wanted to implement recess coverage for teachers once a month. We did not have a lot of response from the first send out of the sign up genius. I think some of them were not forwarded to all of the classroom parents. Can you send the links to your teams and have them put in an email or post on their blogs?
