Just in case anybody was wondering, there were no templates or cutouts involved. Everything that you see is original work generated from scratch.....the way art class was meant to be. :)
The wait is over! Our track and field is complete and it will all be official during our opening ceremonies this coming Thursday. To celebrate its completion, we will be holding house league events all day on Thursday. Every student from k-12 has been split up into 4 house teams and they will all be competing in various track and field events on that day.
Raz-Kids Is Back! http://www.raz-kids.com
A note stating all of your child's "Raz-Kids" login information was sent home last week. Please ensure that your child is reading at least 2 books a day off the website if they are at level P or higher and 3 to 4 books a day if they are below level P. Grade 3 is a crucial year in terms of a child's reading level. Studies continue to show that students who attain grade level reading by the time they finish third grade are much more successful in the following years. That would mean having each student finishing the year at a minimum of a level T. Utilizing Raz-kids on a daily basis will go a long way in helping us get there.
