Greetings!  The children have made the transition from manuscript to cursive writing.  I am asking the children to complete all written work in cursive to practice their new handwriting skills.

I am continuing to emphasize the basic facts in math.  Division is the concept, and practice is the key to unlock success within each student.  To give you a variation to studying the facts via flash cards, you can find in your child’s homework  folder the instructions for a multiplication game.  This is a fun and effective way to practice the basic tables with your child.

Just a reminder:  On Wednesday, February 22nd, the first two cards for the Biography Project are due.  Students should submit these cards to Mrs. Romano for review.

On Friday, February 24th, the students will participate in Alaska Day.  The children will take part in a variety of activities that deal with the state.  Please make sure your child comes to school with the following items:

-a warm coat

– hat and gloves

– boots

-snowpants

-snack and lunch
