Dear Parents and Students,

There are many events happening this week. The 5th and 6th Grade Ski Trip is on Wednesday, Parent Teacher Conferences are on Thursday and Friday, and on the upcoming Monday there is no school (Washington/Lincoln Holiday.) If you have not signed up for a P.T.C conference, the sign up sheet is on the windows in the elementary lobby.

We will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, Feb.14. The celebration will include a movie, treats, and activities.  Your child may bring in a snack to share with their classmates during movie time.  NO SODA, OR CANDY IS ALLOWED.  If your child would like to participate in the “Clandestine Valentine” gift exchange, he/she may bring in a $1.00 wrapped gift for the drawing.  Only those students who bring in a gift will be able to participate.  Thank you for your generosity to our class.

Math
Students will not have math homework this week due to the events that are happening this week. We will review and practice multiplying fractions in class. Below is the link that we will use in class to practice the Fractions Concept. Please allow your child to practice online at home as well.
