Our key math components this month are related facts and inverse operation.  If you have extra time practice these two concepts at home with your child.

Example of related facts: 

3+4=7    4+3=7    7-3=4    7-4=3

Example of  inverse operation:

If 3+4=7, then 7-4=3.

Field Trip to Jabali African Acrobats


          Field Trip

Jabali African Acrobats

Our next field trip is scheduled for Feb.3 from approximately 11:15-1:30.  We will update the times when we receive our official busing schedule.  On this trip we will be going to the  Performing Arts Center to watch the Jabali African Acrobats.  This is a very energetic and impressive group of performers that will amaze the children with their acrobatic routines.  Since this is an Anchorage Junior Theater event with limited seating, we can only take the first 4 parents that sign up.  The cost will be $8 for parents and students.   We are looking forward to a great field trip!

                                 Names on Clothing

Over the break many children get new hats, gloves, jackets, gym shoes and boots.  Please make sure your child’s name is written on their new article of clothing.   

                                        RAZ-KIDS and Lexia

All students now have their Raz-Kid and Lexia passwords to use at school and home.   Take advantage of these programs if your child has access to a computer at home.

                                                         Student Birthdays

We will celebrate each child’s birthday by singing “Happy Birthday” and having the student pick a book and bookmark from our gift box.  Please do not send treats on your child’s birthday.  Instead, we will celebrate all of our January birthdays on Friday, January 30. During this celebration all of the January birthday children are allowed to bring treats for our classes.  Our January birthdays are: 

     Lorren Jan. 7   &  Shelby Jan. 15
