Hi parents and guardians- Here are a couple of quick updates.....


Wow! What a week! I think we've gotten all of winter in three short weeks! I'm ok with that if it starts warming up soon. I hope everyone survived the winter blast and I hope you all go to enjoy the snow! Now its back to work! 

Today students received a paper to perform a random act of kindness. They need to complete the task and have you sign it on the back. Students will be put into a drawing. I will also give 5 PBIS points for my homeroom. Enjoy the nice gestures and perhaps you can think of my kindness acts to do as a family during this pandemic. 

In Social Studies today we reflected on our learning and test scores so far this year. Students can continue to focus on important goals that will enhance their learning and scores. In third grade we finished Chapter 9. We will review Monday and Tuesday with a test on Wednesday. In 4th grade we are beginning Ch 7. We will continue that chapter throughout next week and test the following week. 

Have a great weekend. I can't wait for the thaw to start!!
