News from Mrs. Baxter, Mr. Karsten, and Ms. Hess

Thank you, families, for sharing your wonderful children with us this first week of school! We've had a wonderful first week filled lots of organization, books, math games, and fun. Your child should have a book that they have brought home from school. The book may not be a "just right" book as we are still gathering information about our readers to help them select books that are the best fit for them.

We went for a nature walk this week to gather leaves to preserve for our study of living systems later this year. Ask your child about Saving Sam!

Please see the math technology login information sheets in your child's Friday Folder for IXL and XTRAmath.
