Readers Workshop

We have continued to work on determining importance. We have discussed what is important and what is not so important in what we read. When you read at home with your student, be sure to ask them questions like “What do you think the author wanted you to know?” (Most important).

No School Tomorrow

Tomorrow is a teacher workday for the end of the first trimester. There is no school tomorrow for students.


We will be getting into 2-digit subtraction next week. I teach the kids this saying: “If there’s more on top, no need to stop. If there’s more on floor, then go next door to get ten more”. This saying helps remind the kids to look to see if they need to regroup (“borrow”).

Report Cards Coming

Teachers will be working on report cards tomorrow. They will be sent home sometime next week. Just sign and return the yellow envelope. You may keep the report card.

 Veterans Day Program Tuesday

We will have our annual Veterans Day program in the gym on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Everyone is welcome to come help us celebrate the veterans in our families and communities.
