    The month of February starts the third marking period of our school year.  The children have been working on many projects, learning new things, experiencing uses of technology, and applying knowledge to answer questions.  Your child’s progress can be observed on his or her report card or on the parent portal of Realtime.  It is important to have discussions with your child’s teacher if there are any issues.  Our goal is to make sure that together we can all, parents, teachers, and support staff, make sure you child is successful.

    We celebrate two events in February, Black History Month and Presidents Day.  Our Social Studies Department runs many activities to reinforce to the children the meaning and significance of these celebrations.  Additionally, we will be reading many different stories, biographies, letters, news articles, and historical documents.
