Bearcats, Books, and Beyond

At a school assembly, our students from each grade had the opportunity to share about the book their specific grade level read during the second quarter. The students did a terrific job of sparking interest to read! Below are a few pictures of some of the students. The staff and I are very proud of how our students have been motivated to read! During the third quarter, each grade will be reading a non-fiction book.

Math Facts Mastery

More and more of our students are demonstrating mastery of math facts! Math fluency is an important skill that students will use in the real world. Flash cards are an easy way you can help your student practice. It only takes a few minutes, but the result makes a difference.
