Miss Brown's Bulletin

Week of January 5-9

CHRISTMAS BREAK: from December 19 - January 3

Leader of the Month

Our Leader of the Month for December is...Elle! Elle shows leadership in multiple ways. She meets her goals, she comes prepared each day, she gives 110% in the classroom, she is kind to her classmates, and I could go on and on. Thanks for being such an awesome leader!

Important Dates to Remember

  • January 4: school is back in session
  • January 13: Leadership Day
  • January 18: No School-MLK Day


We had a blast celebrating the 2nd 9 week Compass goals! Now it's time for the 3rd 9 week goals to begin! These goals will run from January 5-March 8, as this date is the end of the 3rd 9 weeks. Students will begin with a clean slate! They will not be required to make up lessons from the previous goal. We hope that everyone will keep the "end in mind" and work hard to meet this goal! A reminder was sent home last week in planners letting you know whether or not your child met their goal and what their new weekly and overall goals will be. If there are any questions feel free to contact me.

AR goals have been reset. The new goal will begin when we return from break and will go until February 28. Letters will come home Monday letting you know if your kiddo met their goal and what their new goal is.

Mad Minute

We have began our mad-minute mastery! And I'm happy to say that almost the entire class has mastered their 1's and earned their bowl for the sundae party in the spring. Some students even earned their spoon! Remember to look for your kiddos mad minute each week in Monday folders. Ask them which number they're working towards mastering and practice.

We Are Learning To...

Language Arts

We will be starting Module 2 when we return. Our first lessons will practice answering questions using details from the text as we have been practicing already.


We will begin Module 3 when we return, which takes us back to multiplication and division. We will be looking at the properties of multiplication and division this week.
