Classroom Update


We will be having a science test next Friday. A study guide will be coming home on Wednesday evening. Students will need to know the characteristics of solids, liquids and gases.

We are still taking our timed multiplication tests. Please take a few minutes to study at home each night. We have made flashcards in class, but you can also find flashcards at the dollar store, Target or Walmart. Thank you very much to the parents offering to send in the treats for the multiplication party. I will send a note home confirming the item you volunteered. If it's something that can be sent to school soon, feel free next time you're at the store to pick it up and send it in. The party will be closer to Spring Break at the beginning of March, so if your item is a perishable item, please wait until closer to the date.

If you have not signed your child's grade card, please send that back to school as soon as possible.

We could definitely use Clorox wipes and pencil top erasers if you would be willing to donate these items. Thank you in advance!

Reading minutes did increase to 80 minutes per week. Please make sure to document this in your child's agenda.

Book orders are due next Friday if you plan to order.
