We appreciate you taking the time to read and review our weekly communication. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out for support and/or clarification. Please enjoy the weekend with family and friends. We will see our students back at school on Monday, October 17th. We look forward to an amazing month of October!

Illustrative Math Parent Resources
This year, we fully adopted Illustrative Mathematics as our district curricular resource for math. Illustrative Math is a problem-based core curriculum designed to address content and practice standards to foster learning for all. Students learn by doing math, solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts, and constructing arguments using precise language. You can find a letter for each grade-level and unit to help support you in understanding the progression of learning your child will be engaging in along with questions and support at home.
Drop Off and Pick Up Table
If you are dropping off items such as forgotten books, lunches, jackets, etc., please leave them on the table in the foyer with your students name on it. Please include your chid's first and last name. Including the teacher's name and grade level is helpful too. If you are picking up assignments for your child because he/she has been out sick that too should be located on our table in the foyer. Thank your for your cooperation.
