Thanks for a wonderful first week of school!  We have loved getting to know your children!  We hit the ground running this week with lots of getting-to-know-you activities and fun.

We hope to see you all at the Open House night on Thursday, August 16th. 

Here is what we’ll be doing next week:

ELA: Our focus will be “How do people use determination to overcome challenges?”  We will be reading texts about famous people who have overcome great challenges.  We will discuss character traits and complete several quick-writes throughout the week.

MATH: We will work on Rounding to the nearest 10 and 100.

SCIENCE: We will begin our study of states of matter.

We are excited for the new year!  Thanks for all of your support so far.  Please make sure to return all “First Day Folder” paperwork.  Also, please be on the lookout for a “Getting to Know You” sheet in your child’s Friday Folder!
