Dear Parents,

I hope you enjoyed this beautiful weather over the weekend!


We will beginning Geometry in Math this week. Monday night, flashcards will be sent home with geometry vocabulary words and definitions. Monday’s homework will be to finish the flashcards. The flashcards will be kept in the red folders (in a baggie) to be reviewed at home in class. Please review these flashcards with your child throughout our geometry chapter. Thank you in advance!

Our goal is to get to 2 minutes by the end of the school year for our subtraction math minutes. Students are working on memorizing and mastering facts in a quick manner by completing these math minutes.


Also, it is that time of the year that the kids are running low on glue sticks, some crayons. If your child is in need of either of these supplies, please have them bring some extra in and I will mark them. Thank you.


I hope you all have a great Spring Break!
