What a welcome relief it has been seeing the sun and feeling it's warmth this week. The snow is finally melting on the playground and we almost have all areas open again. While it was such a joy to wake up to all of that snow and have time to play in it those first few days, many of us were ready to come back to school by about day four. It's good to be back! Our school calendar has been adjusted to make up for the snow days. There will be no more early release Fridays for the rest of this school year. The last day of school will now be a full day on Friday, June 14.
This trimester, your child will have math homework to complete each week. It will be sent home on Monday in the “Homework” pocket of the Home/School Folder. It should be competed and returned in the same “Homework pocket by Friday. Please check your child's homework for accuracy and have them make corrections before turning it in. Don’t forget to initial the “Math” box on the log, after you have checked the homework. Initialed boxes will earn a math stamp. Five stamps = a Friday Surprise! As we move into higher level math skills, it will be even more important to practice math every day. The math homework will be a review of what has already been taught in class and should take no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete. If your child is struggling with math homework, please let me know. Thank you for your support in helping to grow your child’s math brain!
Room 9 read over 10,000 minutes during the Readathon! Our class surpassed their reading goal of 6,000 minutes and earned a movie/popcorn party! We will join all of Ridgeview to celebrate the end of the Readathon by dressing up and taking a serpentine walk through all of the classrooms on Book Character Day. Thank you for supporting your child and our class in this reading challenge.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DR. SEUSS
