• How much homework will there be in math?

    Posted by:

    Students are expected to consistently practice their math facts in order to best be prepared for the many challenging math concepts presented this year. Additional homework will be given when necessary to practice a particular concept, but you should not expect homework every night of the week in mathematics.   We will be working very hard in class and focusing our energy on learning the concepts presented.  It is my belief that children need the evening to spend time with their family, pursue additional interests, unwind and just be kids!  For this reason, homework will be reasonable, never given on a weekend and most often consist only of independent practice of math facts.

  • What if my child doesn't participate in band or chorus?

    Posted by:

    Band and Chorus rehearsals take place at 2:18 on a rotating schedule (every other day).  For those students that don't participate, we call this time "WIN" Time.  It stands for What I Need!  Students can get additional help during this time, work on a particular skill, activity or project or complete a Gold Star Challenge and new this year...students can work on their own STEAM project right in our classroom!

  • Can I send in a birthday snack for my child?

    Posted by:

    YES!  I love to celebrate birthdays (just ask my family)!  You are more than welcome to send in a snack.  Please be sure that it arrives to the main lobby by noon and that it includes enough for our entire class (22 students), napkins and any additional items needed for eating.
