A note from the principal...
CHARACTER EDUCATION WORD
THIS IS AMERICAN HEART MONTH, AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH, INTERNATIONAL FRIENDSHIP MONTH, AND NATIONAL CHILDREN’S DENTAL HEALTH MONTH!
MATH FACTS! Please practice addition and subtraction facts at home with your children. Facts must be memorized and recalled quickly, as math instruction continues with additional skills and concepts. By fourth quarter, students are expected to be fluent with numbers:
At all grades, students work with counting, operations, place value, etc. way beyond these numbers. The standard is that they will memorize math facts, both addition and subtraction, within the range listed for each grade level.
ATHLETIC SHOES: In spite of fashion trends, the best footwear at the Primary School, all year long, is athletic shoes. Students must have them in order to participate in PE classes, and they are the safest shoes for playground equipment and blacktops. Please consider sending your child in shoes appropriate for PE and recess play every day.
CAREER WEEK: We will celebrate our first Career Week at the PS from Feb. 6-10. Students have been learning about different careers in guidance lessons this month, and classrooms at each grade level are planning activities related to career awareness and exploration. On Friday, Feb. 10, everyone is encouraged to wear the clothes or uniform representing your favorite career to school.
PTO READ-A-THON: Thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s Read-a-thon. Keep reading nightly! We will celebrate Read Across America Week and Dr. Seuss’ birthday Feb. 27-March 3.
