January 11 Reminders

News and Reminders
  • Today, we started Ice Cream Math, which is a fun way to help the students memorize their multiplication facts. This program focuses specifically on the retention of learned multiplication facts, as well as improving the speed of answering such facts. Students will be working towards earning an ice cream party, as they pass new levels of their times tables.  Each new level will ensure that they have earned a new “part” of their ice cream party.  For example, one level may be geared towards earning a bowl, while other levels ensure that they get whipped cream, sprinkles, etc.  Practicing basic facts at home with students will greatly impact how quickly they get through the program.
  • Our next Book Exchange is tomorrow. Please remind your child to bring their books to school.
  • Tomorrow is also Wishful Wednesday. Students are invited to participate by wearing a Hawaiian shirt or vacation gear.
