Dear Parents/Guardians,
Our goal is to provide a positive and collaborative learning environment that embeds engaging strategies and rigorous instruction every day to all students for continuous student achievement.
We know that we are gearing up for the December here is what we are doing to find some balance between learning and fun.
 Our lesson plans are focused on the new NG- reading program, Envisions Math, and Science lessons through the last day of school.  When we do celebrate holidays, we will include the recognition of traditions and practices of other cultures around the world.   Movies will never be shown in full. They will be linked and connected to learning and standards. What is better than a great book?  We will continue to avoid food-based celebrations. If the teacher chooses to have snacks, we encourage choosing healthy fruits and vegetables. We will always remain aware of food allergies and hand washing.  Holiday-themed lessons and activities are left for the last days before vacation. Children (and adults) get saturated after a short time...  Routine is important for many of our students and the holidays can be difficult for those who have experienced trauma or loss. We need to continue to be sensitive to all student needs and feelings.
As we do all this and plan our December lessons, we are maintaining an awareness to "Time on Learning" while enjoying the season!
