Dear Parents, families, and students,


                                Can you believe that we are finishing up the month of February already? The end of the third nine weeks is just a couple of weeks away. Has your child met their AR goal? Congrats to those that have! New goals will be set for the final nine weeks after we return from Spring Break.

                                Mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 7th. This will be the evening of the 2-hour P.R.I.D.E. meeting with break-out sessions. Like last year, this meeting will be held at the high school. It is a child free evening, so please make arrangements for your little ones. A list of all the wonderful topics will be sent out soon, so be on the lookout. Hope to see you there!

                               Don't forget, if you have not ordered a yearbook for your child, you may still do so at The price for the yearbook is $32. Don't miss out on capturing your child's elementary school memories!

                                 In reading this week, the following skills will be covered:

                                         * Comprehension Skill: Connections with text: sequence

                                         * Comprehension Strategy: Summarizing

                                         * Structural Analysis: Contractions  with not (review)

                                         * Genre: Biography

                                         * Weekly Story: "Brave Bessie"

                                Completing the assessment for chapter 10 will take place on Monday. Tuesday, we will begin chapter 11: geometry. 3-Dimensional shapes, attributes of 3-dimensional shapes, 2-dimensional shapes, and angles in 2-dimensional shapes will round out the math lessons for the week. The children will have a fact assessment on the 5 multiplication facts on Wednesday. We will begin the 6s on Thursday.  

                                We will be finishing up our units on matter this week. We will then head back into social studies and explore Unit 4: Citizens and Government.

                                My March newsletter is listed below as a PDF. Please take a moment and see what will be happening over the course of the month.

                                 I wish you all a very productive work week. Remember to contact me with any of your concerns.
