Week of February 1st

Classroom News

Mad Math Minute

Every Friday we have been taking a timed test over addition as a review. The students have one minute to complete the test. We are doing this school wide to ensure that all students know their math facts. Once they pass their test each week, they get a treat from Ms. Taylor. It has been a big hit in our classroom!


The last day for students to earn their movie ticket, popcorn, candy and drink will be Feb. 12th (I extended due to snow days). Please make sure your child is practicing their multiplication facts daily whether on an app, flashcards, or using their multiplication booklet we made in class.

Valentine's Dance

We are doing a school-wide incentive program for students to be able to attend the Valentine's Dance. Each student has a punch card and they can lose letters for misbehavior. They may attend the dance as long as they have 2 or more letters left. If a student is sent to the office then the student automatically loses all letters.

Valentine's Day Party

Students are allowed to send in Valentine's Day cards and treats on Feb. 12th. We will pass these out before the dance. I would like for all students to use their creativity and come up with some kind of container to hold their treats and cards. If your child needs any materials for this, please let me know. I will be sending home a class list later this week.


I am requiring that all students who participate in archery must have at least 3 Dojo points in order to attend practice. Being apart of the archery team is a privilege and students must be completing work and behaving in the classroom in order to do this extra-curricular activity.
