SHHH….. It’s a surprise for you child.   I hope you can all help to make this happen. Dear Parents, I’d like to add some fun surprises to your child’s ISTEP daily treats.  I need your help for two of them to happen.   I need a copy of a baby picture of your child with the message: “You got this baby!” on it.  In addition to that, for another day, if you could write an inspirational quote and a short message to your child about how you believe in them ...

Hello Parents, I hope you are doing well and are looking forward to a restful spring break. We need your assistance on a couple of classroom items. If at all possible, those of you who allow your child to use a cell  phone, can they bring it tomorrow, Wednesday, March 21st?  We are going to do a test run on our VR Goggles.   If you would also download Google Expeditions, that would help us get started more quickly. Your child will need to read a book that their group has decided on for their mov...

Dear Parents, We are jammin’ (literally) with our “Let’s Make Music” project that connects an event in history with a theme.  Students are doing an amazing job creating lyrics and music. If all goes as planned, we will complete the project by Friday and save them so that you can listen at home. We are nearing the end of the quarter, which means that AR goals are due a week from today. Each student received their current points and % of goal on Friday.  Please check in with your chi...

Hello Parents,  Thank you for all that you do at home that helped to create these amazing children who bighten our every day.   Today we shared our weather forcast (or how we were feeling). One of the students said that their forcast was sunny with a chance of rainbows.  I think that describes this class perfectly. We had a wonderful, Restorative Circle led by our leaders, Mrs. Johnson, Mr. Blythe and Mr. Davis. Thank you to our great leaders for the special attention and care they give t...
