Habitat Project

We are beginning to see students embrace the habitat around our school and what it was like before we came, as well as what we can do to support our current environment (and the habitats within it).


You could talk with your child about how they can support the habitats around your home or even your pet's habitat!


Remember to work on the project extensions. We are hearing lots of "buzz" about extensions.

BOOK FAIR

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to PRS next week. You may send checks (made payable to Scholastic) to school with your child. You may also send cash, but please talk with your child about keeping up with his or her money.
Hello Internet! It's #SOCKTOBER! Love, Kid President

Please donate canned goods during the month of October!

Columbus Day!

Don't forget! Monday is a holiday-Columbus Day! No school for kids! See you Tuesday!

FreshGrade

Be sure to continue to check FreshGrade. You might also be interested in the app for your phone or iPad. Many of the kinks seem to be ironing out. If you have not accepted the invitation to join your child's account, or have not received one, please e-mail your child's lead learner.

Headphones

Please remember to send a pair of headphones to school for your child if you have not already.

Math

We have learned lots of multiplication strategies this week. These strategies are only the beginning of our multiplication "quest". Please have your child practice multiplication facts consistently.


You might want to practice skip counting with your child, practice flash cards, and play multiplication games.
