Great job Scholars! Several of you earned 100% on the Chapter 9 test. You understand how to multiply 2-digit numbers. Thank you for working hard.
We transitioned back to HSP math with a bang! Yesterday's Chapter 8 math test was a great success. Many students received 100%. That is wonderful! This is a great foundation as we move into Chapter 9. Great job scholars!
Tonight's homework might be difficult to understand. I made a video lesson to help you understand the steps.
There was a time when having internet at home was a luxury. It was nice to have but we could survive without it. Now, educational websites abound. Online tools are ready and waiting to take your child to a deeper level of understanding.
Almost everyone I know has a smartphone. But I am concerned that many parents do not have internet access at home or a working computer.
With Common Core standards and computer-based testing around the corner, your child cannot thrive without access to these tools.
Basic DSL service is available for less than $20 a month. Web-based laptops are less than $300.
Success in the 21st Century requires the right tools. As we transition to Common Core standards, online tools will be essential.
My class passed the challenge. After my colleague attended a refresher training for Write from the Beginning I decided to integrate Thinking Maps as much as possible throughout all subjects. This past Monday we used all 8 maps in one day. My scholars enjoyed the process and I can see their critical thinking skills growing.
Thank you parents for supporting PTA by turning in memberships. We had the most memberships in the school with 30 out of 33 families participating. To celebrate, the students spent some time in the RV arcade. In addition, we had a fun paperball fight in the classroom. The students had a blast!
Have a wonderful week!
Parents, thank you for attending last night. I enjoyed speaking to several of you and look forward to a great partnership this year.

Hello Scholars! Please watch the video below and have your parents complete the online survey. I'll see you Monday!
Summer is almost over and that means it is time to go Back to School. I have been working hard to prepare the classroom for you. During the summer, I have met with teachers across the district to design lessons for our new Common Core standards. It will be an exciting year!
More details coming soon!
Have a wonderful weekend.
