 Crazy Weather –
Lock-Down Drill Moved to Next Week

The weather with delays and closings has made it really hard to stay on any type of regular schedule.  Due to changes, we have moved our school’s planned Lock-Down drill to next week.  Tentatively, it is planned for Wednesday afternoon.

Math

This week, we have been working with adding and subtracting with money (2-digits).  We will finish this topic next week and then move on to measuring.

 Teacher Work-Day is Now a
Snow Make-Up Day

Monday, February 24 has been changed from a Teacher Workday to a Snow Make-Up Day.  School will be in session that day.  The end of the trimester will be moved back until Feb. 28, so report cards will come home likely the following week.

 Valentines Day Party

We will have a Valentines Day Party on Friday, Feb. 14.  If you would like to help out, please let me know 🙂  I am sending home a class list this week in the Friday Folder.  If you choose to send in Valentines for the party, please make sure you include 24.  Thanks!

 Multiplication

Some of the students are now working on multiplication during our “Mad Minute” fact practice time.  If your student is now doing multiplication, they could use any extra practice you can give them at home.  In order to move further through the facts, they should start working on memorizing the facts, starting with numbers up to x5.  Flash card practice is a great way to help them memorize their facts.
