Report Cards:

All students on Track 1, 2 and 3 will be bringing report cards home today. Please be certain to set aside some devoted time this weekend to review and discuss your child’s progress with them.  Goal setting is a beneficial practice to establish for all students. I recommend setting a goal for one area with specific step on how to accomplish that goal. Review progress towards the goal weekly.  For example, I will improve my ability to write opinion pieces with the help of adults.  I will state my opinion 3x a week and write my opinion 1x a week.


Publix Math Night/Spirit Night:

Please mark your calendars now for Thursday January 16 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. for our annual Math Night at Publix.  The purpose of this night is for parents and students to engage in identifying and practicing math concepts in real world experiences.  Parents much remain with their children for this event.  In addition, PTA is sponsoring 3 Spirit Night events at restaurants in the Publix Shopping Center this same evening – Rudino’s, Coldstone Creamery and Chronic Taco.



In the afternoon please keep your # hanging until your child is in your car.  This assists the staff members loading students in the correct cars.  Thank you in advance.
