FROM THE DESK OF MRS. WALLEY

Happy Holidays! As we come to the end of the first semester, I want to thank our teachers, students, and families for making the start of this year great. I encourage each of you to take some time to rest and recharge during our Winter Break. When we return in January, we will be gearing up for mid-year testing. It is important that our students arrive to school on time each day and our ready to give their best in the classroom. Stay safe and enjoy some time with your family.


Happy New Year!

XTRAMATH-MATH FACTS

XtraMath is an online math fact fluency program that helps students master addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. These facts are the building blocks of your child's math education and are absolutely essential for success with fractions, decimals, and other higher-level math concepts. XtraMath is web-based and can be used by students at home with their Chromebook. We ask that you encourage your child to practice their math facts each day. The activities are simple and only take a few minutes.
