It's hard to believe that we are already starting a new year. If you're anything like me, you'll be writing
for the next month and a half. :)
This month we'll not only be working on writing the correct year, we'll also be showing what we know on our winter reading and math assessments! Please make sure that your student comes to school well rested and with a good breakfast so that he or she can do the best possible on these assessments.
We will also be working on seasonal studies: winter and arctic regions, diversity and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and as we get closer to Groundhog Day, we'll look closely at day and night--and what makes our shadows!
I hope you and your family had a wonderful break. Welcome back to school!
