Reading Vocabulary List
A BIG Thank You From Our Soldiers!
All of the items that were donated and collected for the soldiers during the holidays made it to their destination! The troop appreciated all the items and our support! Thanks so much for making it all possible and for everyone's help.
If you plan on sending in a special treat for your child's class, it must be purchased from a store. Please let your child's teacher know in advance. Also, no cakes; it must be able to be served individually. Red drinks are not allowed.
Math Facts in a Flash
Before Christmas, we began a new program called Math Facts in a Flash. It is designed to enhance the regular math program by reinforcing basic math facts. Students must complete each test of 40 problems in two minutes. If they are successful, they will get to move on to the next level in the program. There is a rewards system in place as they attain each new level. From time to time, they will be bringing the Math Facts sheets home for additional practice, if needed. Congratulations to the following people for passing this week:
