  3rd Quarter Change  
 

We begin the 3rd Quarter on January 27, 2015.

The class times and days will change for some teachers during the week of February 2, 2014. Since the PE days may have changed, please confirm any changes in days with your child's teacher. We have implemented A Weeks and B Weeks. 1st Grade through 5th Grade will have PE every other Friday depending on the A week or B week. We will post that the week of February 2, 2015 is a B week.

NOTE: All changes are made in the BEST interest of the students.

  Kindergarten  
 

Kindergarten continues to practice reading and writing through our sight words, decodeable books, and journals. In Math, we are learning about shapes - two dimensional and three dimensional. In Science, we are continuing to review science skills and the scientific method - including tools needed to make observations and how to share these observations. For Social Studies, we are learning about traditions! From traditions of the United States to traditions in our own homes - there is lots to learn about culture and celebrations.
