Mrs. Clinton's News of the Week

    This page is designated for information and news that is upcoming in the week.  It is to help making sure everyone is aware of important items within our school and classroom.



                      Trimester 2  

                 Welcome to 2019

January Goal:  Students have a reading goal. Each student must read 10 stories and log them by January 31st. There will be a class prize on Feb. 1st if every student completes the goal.


The 100th day of school is coming sooner than you think!




This week we will work on activities that will bring your child forward.  A new activity will be working on the computer. Please try to give your child opprtunities to use a computer at home on appropriate guided activities.


    If you would like to come and discuss your child's progress, please make an appointment to visit me.


Movie night is this Friday. It was canceled due to children being sick.

Sweetheart dance is next month.

Please make sure your child is wearing warm jackets and coats to school.











      In Math your child will continue to learn about larger numbers, their value and their place. We will  work with regrouping in addition and problem solving as well. 


                      In Reading we will learn about making connections to our world and our lives. 


              In Social Studies our topic is still on Geography. We will have a test this week.


              In writing we will work with opinions and giving reasons.



      We will continue to incorporate good listening, awesome workers and trying to accomplish our best.

      I thank you for coming to my site and keeping up with the happenings of the school week. Chat with other parents to do the same.


    We will continue working with routine, reviewing skills and mastering the concepts needed to move forward.


     In reading students will be put into groups that will help encourage their learning. Reading is not fun if the vocabulary is too difficult and also if it is too easy. These groups will be ever changing depending on their enthusiasm.  You can help your child's academic fluency by making sure they are reading at home every night.




   In Math,  the students going to Miss Bradford are working on the same concepts, just at a quicker pace.  This is everchanging depending on your child's enthusiasm. If you want to help encourage your child, work with them in Math at home.




In Science, Ms. Bradford will be teaching this content.



 We will be incorporating the use of computers within our academics. You will also be encouraged to carry this on at home.   



           It is so important that students treat each other with Respect, Kindness and get along with each other.  It is NOT acceptable to be mean to others with words or actions. It will not be tolerated.


This is why we have our school wide CARS program. CARS is for Caring, Accountability, Respect and Safety.

Your child should be applying this through their every day activities here at school and at home. We all approach work differently, approach activities differently and complete work at different rates. Working together helps your child to understand that everyone is unique, special, and deserves respect.


Remeber we are also still using the 3 coin system. This way your child can decide their direction of behavior and know that there are consequences for a bad choice.






      Remember: Your child will be coming home with a 1, 2, or 3 every night in the planner.  This reflects their school behavior, determination to work hard, their ability to focus on a task, and ability to work on a team with classmates.  


   Remember :   Since it is now the 2nd trimester, expectations will be increasing. At this point in the year listening skills should be better, calling out should be minimmal and staying on task should be better.

                       If at any time you have questions, PLEASE, get in touch with me through the planner or my email. 


    The following misdeameanor behaviors we are trying to work on, like:     Calling out, sitting in our chair inappropriately, trying not to talk while someone is already talking, tattling on minor happenings, being silly when the time is to focus on work, and/or when directions need to be followed and finally, being mean to anyone.





                           Please make sure you sign your child's planner every night.




            Thank you for all your help. Thank you for caring. Thank you for all you do as a parent.
