Fall Fiesta – We will be having Fall Fiesta on October 5th.  We are having 3 booths: face painting, tattoos, and a coke toss.  We are asking for students to bring in 6 packs of a type of soda.  Please send them as soon as possible.  The money that we earn during this fiesta will help pay for buses for up-coming field trips.

 

Math - Our school uses the Investigations and Math*U*See programs. We are still working on addition and subtraction along with multiplication.  We are working hard on story problems and using the ACE method.

 

Reading & Writing – In reading, we are working on finding main ideas and details in addition to finding the problem and the solution is a story. We have just finished giving your child their DRA to see what level they are for reading.  Your child should be able to tell you their level.  We are using the 6 traits writing program to help become better writers along with grammar.  We have also started learning cursive using the program Handwriting without Tears.

 

NDI – The National Dance Institute (NDI) comes to our school every Thursday at 10:05-11:05.  You may come watch your child practice and learn new moves for the performance in April.  They are working very hard learning their dance.

 

Dial-A-Teacher – A program of licensed teachers, that can help your child after school with homework.  They can help in English and Spanish.  The hours are Monday – Thursday 5:30-8:30 at 344-3571.  Please take advantage of this help.
