Fierce Eagle of the Month

Elementary Night at Prosper High School Basketball Night

Come show your Eagle PRIDE at the February 2nd Girls and Boys Varsity Basketball game. The girls play at 6:15 and the boys will begin at 7:30. We would LOVE for our FOLSOM family to have a huge crowd to cheer on the mighty eagles. We need to PACK the ARENA with FIERCE FOLSOM shirts!!!


You must order by Friday, January 29 to reserve your copy! Make sure that your child doesn’t miss out on our yearbook tradition. It’s the only book that captures the year’s events, activities, friendships, experiences and memories.

Candy Heart Graphing

This week in math students will be using candy conversation hearts to collect, sort and graph data. After this math activity students will be able to take home their box of conversation hearts.

Valentine's Day

February 12th, we will exchange Valentine greetings by doing the following:

* Students may make a Valentine bag, box, etc. at home and bring to school on Friday, February 12. Classroom instructional time is not used to make Valentine bags or boxes.

* Fun stickers, pencils and candy (suckers, ring pops, fun-dip, etc.) items may be attached to Valentine cards to be distributed by students to other students.

21 Day Challenge

Karate Belt Math GREEN BELT

We have been working on the “Doubles and Near Doubles” strategy. I am attaching the Green Belt flash cards we are using in class. The best way to approach them is to have your child sort the cards into two piles: doubles and near doubles. Focus first on learning all the doubles then gradually mix in the near doubles. You can even encourage them to explain out loud to you “since I know 5+5=10 then I know 5+6 must be one more so it’s 11”

I hope you enjoy helping your student prepare for this at home. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Please use the attached documents to work on these concepts at home.
