What We Are Learning This Week

Our school improvement goal for Schofield Elementary is to make sure at least 80% of our students are proficient with Missouri Learning Standards for math and literacy. Here is what we will be learning this week to work toward this goal:

Reading: Author's Purpose

Writing: Opinion Writing

Math: Find the value of a combination of coins. Use coins to show a given amount.

Social Studies: Read and construct maps, tell the different uses for a variety of maps, and locate and name the regions of the world.


Our class met the math goal "most of us will fluently add within 200 with regrouping"! We celebrated with a PJ day!

Counselor's Corner

During our next visit from Ms. Pietruszynski, students will begin exploring the world of work. Students are never too young to start thinking about future careers and we are excited for our Schofield students to begin thinking about their future. As always, feel free to contact Ms. Pietruszynski with any questions/concerns you might have regarding your student. or 732-3610.
