Winter Edition Falcon Chronicles



Dear Falcon Families,


It is our pleasure to share our Winter Falcon Chronicles with you. Each quarter, the Falcon Chronicles is published to communicate the content, skills and strategies that will be learned during this period of time. In addition to listing each content area and the focus of the unit(s) of study, you will read about ways to integrate learning into daily conversations and experiences at home. Falcons Chronicles is published four times a year.
