Never Stop Learning

In a growing effort to increase parent communication I am beginning this newsletter with the hope to continue bi-weekly until the end of the year. During our most recent Professional Development we learned about the program I will be using to electronically send out this newsletter. If at any time you do not wish to receive this newsletter please let me know and I will take you off the mailing list.

It's my goal to keep everyone informed of upcoming events, skills checks, quizzes and tests. I will include a calendar, but please keep in mind that dates are subject to change. If you ever have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call or email me.

Chapter Summaries

Worth it!

At the end of each chapter in our math book there are several pages that include a summary. These pages make great reviews. There is a lot of new vocabulary this unit and the summaries include all the vocabulary from the chapter. Chapter 10's summary begins on page 87. If you would like to review with your son/daughter please ask them to bring home their book or tear out the summary.
