We enjoy celebrating birthdays, so if you plan on sending in special treats please make sure they are peanut-free and tree-nut free, since we have food allergies in the classroom.  


We will be having snack in the classroom, so please send in a healthy snack, as well as peanut-free and tree-nut free.  


Please make sure that your child has their ticket if they are buying hot lunch.  Hot Pretzels will be sold on Tuesday and Ice Cream will be sold on Thursday's during lunch.

Social Studies (Chap. textbook pages and H.W. Pages are in S.S. tab)

    We started Unit 2 Cultures Meet, of our S.S. textbook. We are learning about the cultural differences and competition for land that led to conflicts among different groups of people int Americas. The age of exploration and the colonies that they settled in. Students will be working in independently on an Explorer and do research during S.S. Then they will present to the whole class sometime at the end of February.    

Current Events are big hit in our class, with students now going onto their second assignments.  Thank you, for all of the great interesting articles that the students have been sharing.  It has sparked great discussions in the classroom.
