Message to Parents

 Please join the PTA for $6.00.  The money helps to purchase buses for a future field trip!  So far I only know of 13 families that have joined.  Please write me a note if you have already joined and turned it in with a sibling or directly to the office.  This way I can reward your child with 3 raffle tickets.
Math Test
On Friday, January 20, we took our Chapter 5 Math Test.  Some of the students received their scores today, Monday, January 23.  If the test was returned then your child has already corrected their test.  I will continue working with students in small groups until all tests are returned.
 Parents, please make sure to take your children to Pizza Hut so their coupons can be redeemed!
 These are the students who met their goals for the following months:
Jasat, Andrew, Alexandra, Kaela, Abigail, Victor, Landon, Jonathan, Jaeleen, Jessica, Joshua, Jasmine
Nicholas A., Andrew, Alexandra, Kaela, Victor, Joel, Noah

Jasmine, Abby, Joel, Jonathan, Monica, Damian, Chanel, Allen, Jayden, Payton, Ryder, Jackie, Noah, Alexandra, Kaela, Jasat, Joshua, Landon, Andrew, Jessica, Victor 
Students have been working on meeting their goal of 45 minutes per week on I-Ready!  Many of our students have exceeded 45 minutes and are working on I-Ready for over 100 minutes! 
The more practice, the better their skills will become. 
The following students have done I-Ready for at least 45 minutes.  The number indicates how many weeks they have met the goal!  Congratulations!

   Now that our class is 1:1 with Chromebooks, it is important that every student has a pair of headphones because the school does not supply headphones with each Chromebook.  We still have a few students that do not have a pair and many of the headphones I purchased are no longer working.   If possible, please send a pair of headphones/earbuds to school with your child.   Place them in a bag with their name and I will keep them in a safe place until they are needed.  Donations of headphones would also be greatly appreciated.
The sixth grade team usually sells popsicles for $1.00 after school on Wednesdays. They set up a table on the north side of the cafeteria.
