  • Please remember to have your child at morning assembly by 7:40am. Morning assembly is a great way to start our day together as a class family.
  • Make sure to check and initial their Panther folder daily for behavior notes and school/community information.
  • Check their blue Homework folder for any assignments. Remember all homework is given Monday and due Thursday with the exception of spelling tests, which will be administered on Friday.


This week we begin focusing on double digit addition without regrouping. Our main goal this week is to introduce the concept of adding across places. For example: 52+37 is the same as 50+2 and 30+7. Since 50+30=80 and 2+7=9...80+9=89.

We will spend more time on solving and creating word problems. Keep in mind, this spring semester, whole group reading of assessments will no longer take place. Students will be expected to raise their hand if reading assistance is needed.


We wrap up our discussion of weather with focus on weather patterns and phenomena. We also look closer at the water cycle.
