We have survived progress reports! Don't worry, there is still time to improve on all grades for the first quarter. The students will arrive to new locations in the classroom on Monday. I have moved all the desks. We were getting a little too comfortable with our neighbors. Hopefully, everyone will be fresh for about a month.....then we'll move again. I've got to keep them on their toes.

My electric pencil sharpener does not work very well and the students have had to use small hand held sharpeners at the back of the room. In order to keep work flowing, I have told the students that when their supply of pencils run out, they are encouraged to get a good mechanical pencil with lead refills (#7). Hopefully, this will eliminate the constant movement during work time.

Wednesday -- HALF DAY.

I would like to thank Erik for giving such a wonderful speech at our Heroes' Night presentation. He made me so proud and I know his family was also! Great job Erik!

Our students will be taking home a progress report this week. Please make sure you review their grades and sign the bottom so the students can return them to me. If you see any grades that are a bit shocking----be assured that they have until October 14th. to improve on them.

Please continue to practice the multiplication table with your child. We will have a test on Friday on multiplication with two digits times one digit.

We will soon have a test on the Northeastern states and capitols. We are also covering the three branches of government and their duties.

We have started our first experiment on Friday. We are testing three types of wraps; baggies, tin foil, and wax paper. We will eventually figure out which one of these has kept our slices of bread the most fresh.

I would like to thank all of my parents for making sure that your children are doing their homework. We have had great success with homework.

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations Mrs. Hurley's class! We had perfect attendance for the 100th. Day!
Thank you administration for rewarding us with a pizza party.

February is African American History Month.

Awards Assembly for 2nd quarter is this week.

We are studying Arizona State Symbols and the Saguaro Cactus Blossom is Arizona's state flower. During the storm a couple of weeks ago, our saguaro cactus almost fell over on our house. The "cactus doctor" came to fix it and had to cut off a couple of its arms due to its weight. I brought in 4, two inch slices of the arms so the students could see how suculant and moist the inside was. We will keep an eye on them to see what happens next!
