Staff Spotlight!

This week we are highlighting Mrs. Young! Mrs. Young is our Resource co-teacher! Not only does she pull small groups of students into her office for more individualized instruction, she also pushes into classrooms to co-teach. You will never find Mrs. Young sitting still. She is always working with students or helping out a fellow staff member. She is constantly going above and beyond for any student or staff member who needs her! Thank you for everything you do Mrs. Young!

Classroom Happenings!

"I love using different strategies."- Jack B. in 2nd grade can't get enough of the double digit math work his class has been up to!


Our second grade classrooms have been focusing on different math strategies such as the jump strategy, split strategy, and tens and ones. In literacy they have been reviewing non-fiction text features and continue to practice retelling stories! In Science they are working hard to figure out why certain trees haven't been growing in a Bengal Tiger Reserve and learning about what seeds need in order to grow! Keep up the awesome work 2nd grade!!

Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner. As a reminder, children should not bring edible treats with them to distribute to their friends and classmates. Additionally, students should not bring any look alike or toy weapons as costume props. Please remember that children will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m. on 10/29. There will be no EC/BEL classes in session on 10/29.


Our students will have a chance to show off their costumes during the Halloween Parade. The parade will start at 9:30 a.m. Parents are welcome to view the parade as we move around the outside of the campus. Please be aware that the parade will be cancelled if it rains or if it is too cold outside. (The ten day forecast shows sunny and warm on the 28th!)

Water Bottles

Please remember to send children to school with their water bottles. Our water fountains have bottle fillers, but the drinking spouts have been temporarily disabled to reduce the risk of spreading COVID.
