Kasilof, AK

Kids need to be here at 5:45 and go to their classrooms.

WHAT!!?? Only two weeks until CHRISTMAS!!!

Yep, this quarter flew by faster than the first one. I hope you all are enjoying the winter (ish) weather. We have a few events coming up so please take a look at the "coming events" at the end of the newsletter. Also, I hope you are finding the "Parent University" links. The teachers have sent several to me but I am only including a few at a time as to not overwhelm.

Best wishes,

Parent University - Mean, Median, and Mode

Mean, Median, and Mode. This is a great, fun way to review the vocabulary of data analysis.

Parent University - Median and Range Puzzle

This is a great video for students to watch at home or with parents to review as well as challenge them on some key data analysis concepts. This will help students to review and practice the skills of mean, median and range while they solve a problem

Repeat from last week. We still need your input.

Your input needed.

If you like how things are going or if you want things to change, either way, we need your input. Below is a link to the district survey page. Please take a few minutes and select the appropriate links in order to provide input for our school. I know for sure that all of us take a look at these and use them to inform our decisions about Tustumena and the future instruction. Thank you in advance for filling them out.
