It's Cold Outside!

It's good to be back in the swing of things after Winter Break! Please keep in mind that students will go out for recess unless the wind chill is below 0. Encourage your child to keep a pair of gloves and a hat in the pocket of her coat. Also, students will not be allowed off the blacktop without snow pants and boots if there is snow on the ground.

Math Facts

Math Facts continue to be crucial to your child's success in math. If your child has not passed multiplication in Xtra Math (ask him, he'll know), it's time to hit it hard. It is our goal to have 100% of our class pass multiplication in Xtra Math by the end of the year. At this point we are just under 50%. You can help at home by encouraging your child to do Xtra Math daily, complete practice time tests (you can print these online, or I can send copies home) or study flash cards. This foundation will pay off in the coming years!
