 There will be no school on Monday, February 16, President’s Day.

I want to thank all of the families who attended the scheduled Parent-Teacher Conferences!  The turnout was 100% attendance to date.  I have a few more scheduled for Tuesday.  I appreciate that you took the time to come, listen, share, and work as a team with your child to help him/her be their very “best self,” in all ways. Each child is unique, special, talented, and so capable!  We can accomplish so very much together.

Please take some time to sit with your child and have him/her try out some of the fun educational websites I have on this blog. Many of them will help with math skills. If the grade 2 skills are too difficult at this time, he/she should work on grade 1 skills for awhile. If the grade 2 skills are too easy, try grade 3 or maybe even 4!  The grade levels vary depending on the company (website). Our Minnesota Math (and all!) Standards are much higher than most of the other states, thus the company’s grade level skills are often of an easier level than our state math standards and MCA (state) tests that begin in grade 3. It’s important that your child be learning something new, not just rapidly clicking answers that are too easy, and that they are being challenged.

Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, February 12, from 2:00-9:00 p.m.  These are mid-quarter conferences, so there won’t be report cards. Instead, we will spend the time talking about your child “in-depth,” since I know each and every one of them so well now! I really enjoy these February conferences, because, it’s a time to talk about your “whole” child and his/her growth and how we can work as a team to help her/him really soar and succeed in school! I value our time, and thus, you will find that I’m well prepared with assessments and informal information regarding your child. I hope to see all of you at your scheduled time this week (or two of you the next week)!

 

Students will be dismissed at 1:45 p.m. on Thursday, February 12. There will be a Book Fair in the Media Center with all proceeds benefiting our library. All community members are invited to come and shop, and in doing so, help out our school library
