With January comes a new year to hope and dream, laugh and love, and learn! May 2018 bring you a fresh start to an incredible second half of the school year! We will begin Reading with a novel study of the book, “Freckle Juice” by Judy Blume. Students need to have this book in order to complete classwork successfully. In Math, we will continue working on Place Value to strengthen our conceptual understanding of numbers and their operations. Please encourage your child to work hard in this second semester and not to give up. There is still time to bring grades up and turn bad situations around with a growth mindset. Until next time …..
