Paws For the Pack News

Week of September 28th

Wow! I am so proud of how hard the students have been working in all subject areas!

I have set all students up on Raz Kids and will show them how to log in tomorrow. This is a great website for them to read "just right" text and the take quizzes that address the common core standards.

If your child has not told you yet, they were on a very exciting math online game on Friday - tug team Giraffe pull- they were practicing reading time on a clock and having a blast doing so! :)

Looking forward to tomorrow - we get to sing our Monday song! :)
