  • Thank you to all of the families that participated in the first PTO fundraiser!
  • Snack donations are welcome all the time.  Thanks to those of you who have already contributed.
  • Please pay the $85 student fee.
  • Please join the PTO for $20 per family. The PTO supports our school in so many ways!


This week we will read Stellaluna and will study vocabulary and themes from the text. Students will discuss character traits, major events in the story and the author’s purpose or lesson. We will compare and contrast bats to birds and add some bat art during Daily 5.

Sight Words- they, as, be, with, he.

Vocabulary- clutched, clambered, gracefully, clumsy


The students will continue to write daily.  We select a piece of writing for publication this week. Students will make sure the story has three parts, beginning, middle, end, at least one sentence, and corresponding picture on each page. We will celebrate our writing on Friday at our first Writing Celebration.


This week, we will continue with unit 2. Students will explore change to more, change to less diagrams, and work with mystery numbers (missing addends) in number stories.


We will continue to look closely at patterns in the sky, specifically the movement of the sun. We will explore what the word “orbit” means. We will read a nonfiction book about stars and find out what students already know using a KWL chart.


We will continue with our discussion of what families need and want.
