Homework

Students should practice fluency in reading and math every night!

Fluency is how quickly you can complete a task accurately.

Many times our students struggle with math problems because of the time that it takes to remember math facts needed to solve a problem. Math fact fluency is so important! Students need daily practice in addition and subtraction in the lower grades and multiplication and division in the upper grades. Online games and flash cards are very helpful in building fluency.

Math Facts in a Flash is a computer program that you can access from home. More information on the program can be found below.

For reading, students need uninterrupted periods of time to read! Make time for your child to read. Read with your child. Let your child read to you.

Working on reading and math fact fluency is something that you can do with your child every day!

Online Learning Programs

Respect

Our goal for the month of October was to remind students to continue to respect each other’s differences, and to celebrate the things that make us unique. At Hall, we feel strongly about teaching the students to treat others the way they want to be treated. As well as respecting their bodies by pledging to stay drug free!

Hall had several community partners visit with the students to discuss the dangers of tobacco, bullying behaviors, and ways to show respect to others. Here are a few conversation topics to continue with your student.

Definitions:

· Showing consideration for other people and their property.

· Caring for ourselves, family, community, and school.

· Appreciating and accepting individual differences.

How can we show respect?

· Use kind words and good manners.

· Listen to what others have to say. Follow the rules.

· Appreciate differences among people.

· Take care of other people’s property at school, home, and in the community.

· Help others.

“If you expect respect, then be the first to show it!”

“Respect is learned, earned, and returned."

Special Diet or Food Allergies

The Child Nutrition Program must have written documentation from a physician for students who require an alternative diet or food items. Mrs. Hunter has the "Diet Prescription for Meals at School " form that will need to be completed by the physician. Please let us know if you need this form. If you have submitted one in the past, please be reminded that the form is only current for that school year and that a new form must be completed for the 2018-2019 year.

Alta Pointe School Based Program

Hall Elementary has a school-based therapist from AltaPointe three days each week. If you believe that your child has a need or could benefit from their services, please let the office know and we can help you to schedule an intake appointment.
