Tues Dec 14th (10 days till Christmas)

Only 2.5 days left of school!

Today we were blessed to have Mrs. Poier come to our class and teach us how to make homemade Christmas cards! They look really beautiful. My students were so generous that they wrote in their cards and sent them to families that are less fortunate :)

We have been learning about Advent and the special journey we all are on right now. My students should be very proud of themselves for all that they have done for others throughout this season of Advent.

Reminders: Tomorrow is our unit #2 test in math. We  get to go watch the k-3 dress rehearsal in the afternoon (beginning at 1pm). Thursday is a FULL day and we will be having our word wall test. Friday we are having our Christmas breakfast and pj day!!! What an amazing week.

God Bless,

Mrs. Denman

Mon Dec 6th

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...probably busy preparing for Christmas!

A reminder that the Christmas Concert for grade 4-6 is on Dec 8th this Wednesday evening. The show begins at 7:00 pm sharp, I would like the students to start arriving by 6:30 pm. The dress attire is white shirt/black pants. My students have an interesting performance so they have a costume that goes with their song. I have already given the students the Christmas concert tickets to take home: 2 per child.

As we are nearing to Christmas break we still have curriculum that we are trying to get finished. The students are working on a "Christmas Around the World" research report. We have begun to write the reports and they students will be taking their report home to edit and work on, if they did not finish throughout the day. Please if you have a chance read over your child's report. They are looking really great so far! They will present their report before we leave on vacation.

The students will be having their Math Unit #2 test on Wed Dec 15th.

Take Care & stay warm,

Mrs. Denman

Tues Nov 30th- last day of Novemeber!!!

Hi All,

The students had their word wall test today, for most it was a success. Please remind your children to study their words everyday. These are words that are very important to know and remember.

Some students have math homework today (on estimation and subtraction of 3 and 4 digit numbers). Most were able to finish and check over during class time.

Reminder: This week is Santa's anonymous and first week of ADVENT.

Have your child retell what they learned from Father Catfish this week :)

The Christmas concert is next wed (Dec 8th) at 7pm. The dress attire is white shirt/black pants. Also, most students in my class are dressing up in costume.

There will be a math unit test before the holidays. Most likely the week before holidays. I will keep you posted on the date for the exam.

Thank you. Let me know if you have any questions!
