We are also learning to write informational texts. Students are expected to be able to write about a specific topic using facts, definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples related to the topic. The more they read good examples of this type of writing, the more likely they are to be successful when writing themselves.
In addition to working on fractions, please encourage your children to continue studying their basic math facts, particularly multiplication.

Please send in your box tops. Each box top is worth 10 cents. The PTO uses the proceeds to fund many projects at Prairie Heights.
Please make sure your child comes to school dressed appropriately for the weather. Boots and snow pants are required for playing in the snow.

Think B4 U Speak
During the week of January 19-22, 2016, College Community Schools will be celebrating its 6th annual Think B4 U Speak Week. This special week is dedicated to recognizing the importance of taking a collective stand against bullying and working together to continue to establish a community that is both a safe and exciting place to be a part of.
We would like to extend an invitation for you to be a part of this effort. Without your help, our vision of a bully free community would not be possible.
This year, our theme is "Celebrate Kindness". We believe in celebrating kindness while working to create safe schools free from name-calling, bullying and bias.
For more information, you can also check out our Think B4 U Speak website at https://sites.google.com/site/2016ccsdthinkb4uspeakweek/home.
Your commitment and involvement means a great deal to us, and it is with your help that our vision to continue establishing a bully free community stays a reality. We encourage all to take the pledge as a family under the “Take the Pledge” tab.
