Thanks to Mr. Samulak, our guest music teacher, and to Mrs. Girouard, upon her return from maternity leave, for preparing students for our spring musical. It was a playful choice and one we hope children and families will remember.

Everybody Needs Options: Visualizing Fractions
Want to really see what a fraction looks like? Draw a picture. There will be no doubt about the relative size of fractions. This model, the third and last in a series by Eureka Math Lead Mathematician Scott Baldridge, connects abstract numbers to easy-to-remember visual images. These models give students alternative ways to think about mathematical concepts and provide options for solving problems.

Exploring Themes- 4th Grade Book Club
Caught Being Good
Our faculty and staff use Caught Being Goods as just another way of letting children know that we notice and appreciate simple acts of being helpful and kind throughout our school. When a student receives a Caught Being Good he or she also receives a small prize from Principal Ellis. Here are some students we would like to recognize from this week.
