Room 209


Welcome to Room 209

Now that we have finished the 1st quarter we have seen great progress and growth in the areas of math, reading, writing, science, and social studies. 

We are currently working on a number of things in the room, but I always reinforce the need to be kind and respectful to others. Room 209 is a TEAM! Students should set their goals high and aim big!

Students will learn many, many new things this quarter.  Remember...reading is very important in all the subjects areas!

The Chicago Public Library has many excellent programs for your child!  You can even get passes for many of the museums in the city.

READ, READ, READ, Every night!
