                    Due to the storm day our Career Fair has been postponed until Wednesday Feb.1st\2017. Parents will be welcome to attend the fair from 12:25-2:15. The students are looking forward to sharing all that they have learned.

                    Also, I wanted to remind everyone that the students will begin in their new class on Feb.6th\2017. I will continue to teach them math.


Winter SnowmanPlease note that hats and mittens are needed for the winter months. Often times, the weather is much colder at the school compared to what is posted on the weather network. This is due to the high winds that run through our school yard. Students will also need snow pants if they wish to play in the snow.

Hello everyone,

                    Just a reminder that you should be completing a round of xtramath each night. If you do not have access to a computer you could write out your multiplication facts 5 times each for the 6,7,and 8's. You could also use the games that were sent out in the homework a few weeks back.

 Don't forget that Friday is the day you will be writing your test on place value..
