December Math Unit Overviews for Families
Here are the monthly Math unit overviews by grade level, in English and Spanish. The first newsletter of the month will focus on Math while the second newsletter of the month will cover reading & writing via English Language Arts (ELA). These unit overviews are useful tools for the family to look over together and help manage expectations for your child prior to starting a new unit.

Message from the nurse about Change of Clothing & Clothing Donations
If anyone is going through their closets and would like to donate any extra clothing that you no longer need, we are in need of boys and girls elastic waist pants (any size), but ESPECIALLY for sizes 4-10. Also, any donations of new & unused underwear would also be appreciated. Please remember to send a change of clothes to be kept in your child's locker for emergencies. We do not always have on-hand the size that they may need in an emergency.
If you have any questions regarding any of the information on this newsletter, please contact David Castro (Norwood School to Community Coordinator) at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling his direct line at 443-809-1505.
