Yikes, a fire drill!

We had a little excitement here today as a fire drill took place just before lunch time. Students were surprised, but of course, everyone made it out. Please check with your child to ensure they have indoor shoes, some were caught without. Ask your child about a shared reading piece we are doing called "Desert Run". Grade 3/4 are being asked to retell it tomorrow. See how much they remember, it is a neat story. In math we created surveys, collected data, and are now getting ready to graph our results. Here is a website for some extra practice with tally charts and graphs: Also, some have asked for some extra materials for reading at home. Remember that each student is asked to read for at least 15 min. a night. Asking your child to retell what they have read, or to make a prediction about what happens next, are great conversation starters. Have a good night. Remember that there is a PD day on Mon. Oct. 25th, so no school that day (except for the teachers).
