News for the Week of March 18

Did your son or daughter tell you about the craziness we walked into on Friday? While Miss Drahus and I were at a meeting before school the leprechauns caused quite a lot of trouble by throwing our morning work and lollipops on the floor and then hiding around the room! Oh my, it was a mess! Luckily, we were able to keep them under control for the remainder of the day!

Has your child been keeping up with his/her reading calendar this month? We are halfway through the month! We are trying to read more than 7,044 minutes this month!

We will be wrapping up our time chapter this week and beginning a measurement chapter next week in math.
