Everything you need to know about room 209 and more....


This past week we were lucky enough to have the Alash Ensemble from Tuva.

All of us were mesmerized by music they perform which features "throat singing," an ancient style of singing in which one person can produce more than one pitch at a time.

I encourage you to check out their comprehensive website which features videos and learning activities:

This week.....

mCLASS and MAP testing is done!!! All of your students worked so hard these past couple of weeks. I will be sending both mCLASS and MAP reports home with your child this week and next. I will be discussing all of this data with each child, so they should be able to talk with you about it. If at any time you would like to meet with me regarding your child's progress, please do not hesitate to call or email me and we can set up a parent/teacher conference.
