From Mrs. Bailey

At the end of this week, your child's first semester progress report will arrive in your home. It's always a great time to reflect on all that our students have accomplished; both as learners, friends, and classroom citizens. You may notice that there are several markers in the math section of the report that are marked as "not introduced". As you know, we've shifted our curriculum to Math in Focus, which has a different emphasis in content and sequence. We will be revisiting the math section of our progress reports for next year, giving us this year to implement Math in Focus and identify our priority learning objectives in the curriculum. Please refer to the narrative comments to gauge your child's progress in math this year.

On another note, there will be a change for morning arrival...students arriving by car between 8:00 and 8:15am will now be asked to go to the 1/2 or 3/4 Commons instead of going to the library. Students in grades 1-4 who arrive by car between 7:30 and 8:00am will continue to go to the LS Library.
