Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon week is Oct. 24th-Oct. 31st. We have lots of fun activities planned. With the younger students we are NOT focusing on “drugs” but rather making healthy choices for our bodies (exercising, eating healthy, getting plenty of sleep, etc.). The students will take part in decorating our school during this week to show our schools support in being healthy. The students will be coming home with a special Red Ribbon Week treats daily during Red Ribbon Week.
HalloweenThe class Halloween party is quickly approaching. Our class will celebrate with a class party after our “Famous Liberty School Halloween Parade" at 11:00 a.m. I ask that you send your child’s costume to school in a bag with his/her name on the outside. The bag will be used to put their “street” clothes and shoes in after they change into their costume. If your child has a difficult costume to put on, please arrive around 15 minutes early to help them get changed. The children will be released at 12:10 p.m. Have a safe Halloween.
Mad Minutes start the week of September 30th. The children work hard to do as many math problems as they can in one minute. Each day the children will receive one page of 30 addition and 30 subtraction math problems. They will be timed for a minute. asked to draw a line, and finish each page. The children will be asked to meet the first trimester grade level expectation of 15/30 on both the addition and subtraction Mad Minute. Mad Minutes are not easy in the beginning, but soon the children will memorize their basic facts and finish each addition Level A1 and subtraction Level A4
(sums & differences 1-9) Keep practicing your triangles at home and your child will soon reach or exceed each trimester expectation.
