A Busy Week!

Thanks to all the parents who attended Parent/Teacher Conferences.  I enjoyed visiting with you about your child.  They are some pretty amazing kids!

This is Red Ribbon Week.  A note was sent home last week explaining each day's theme.

We will go to B & J Skate Center on Tuesday.  Your child may bring his/her own skates if they wish, rent inline or hockey skate for $2.00, or use the regular rental skates.  The concession stand and games will be open also.

Thanks to the room parents who are busy getting things ready for our party on Friday.  Please send money or treats to school by Tuesday.

The costume parade will be at 2:00 in the gym.  Parties will follow at 2:30 in the classroom.  Please make sure your child's costume is appropriate for school-no scary masks!

Addition and Subtraction Facts

We will be taking some "timed test" over addition and subtraction facts.  It is not only important that the students know different strategies for solving these facts, but be able to solve them quickly.  In other words...memorize the facts.

The Dollar Tree has addition and subtraction flash cards for $1.00.  These would be a great investment to help your child memorize the facts.

Thanks for all your help!
