Welcome to February!
WOW! What an amazing snow storm. We have been trying to "ketchup" here at school all week. Tomorrow is the end of the 2nd marking period and this Friday is the "moveable teacher workday."
We are finishing up the Mid-West region in the U.S. in Social Science. In Science we're wrapping up our ocean work. In Math we are going to be finishing up comparing and ordering whole numbers, fractions, mixed numbers and decimals. We will also be finishing up our Mid-Year testing.
Along with inter-weaving the curriculum across the subject areas we will be also focusing on how can we be the best that we can be. I want to make sure that they are all more than ready to head off to Harmony Middle School next year. We will be working on developing the skills, attitudes, and success minded principles needed to be successful in life.
As always we will continue to work on our organization. Red Folders will come home when there's something that needs to come home in them. So, please keep a look out for them on a daily basis, just in case. I will also do my best to keep this web page updated weekly. I'm hoping to get some pictures and possibly some videos linked soon.
Your child will have spelling and math homework daily, unless otherwise notated in their agendas. Please continue to encourage them to read for at least 20 minutes daily.
Here are some dates to put on your calendar:
Thursday, February 4th, 2016: Last day of the marking period

The path to success is straight through failure!
Here's to an amazingly awesome year!
