Finding our history on a map.

Thank you to all of you for your help writing significant places in your families lives. 213 had a blast placing all our locations on a map and saw a lot of trends that will lead right into our immigration unit.

Homework Club

This program is great for students that may need a little extra help or confidence with homework.
Teachers are ready to help with the content but also help them stay on task to complete their assignments.
I sent one home today with every student. If you need to, you can print this out and send it in.


If you have already attended a meeting, you do not need to go again. If anything changes, I will let you know.

"Field trips are considered to be a strong component to the educational process that facilitates hands ­on

learning, vocabulary development and background knowledge. All field trips are curriculum­ based and

are connected to lessons and projects. Buses are provided for all field trips and a permission slip with a

parent signature is required in order for a student to attend a field trip. Classroom teachers often request

parent volunteers. All parent volunteers are required to have an updated CORI form on file at

Central Office and also attend a Principal’s Confidentiality Meeting to be eligible to chaperone field

trips.​Special health requests need to be communicated with the school nurse prior to the field trip."

- Principal Lyons

Math Log

Here is another copy of the "math log" (similar to a reading log) that I gave the students today. Knowing your multiplication facts is key, especially as we advance into more challenging math. I was asked by a few students to re-make the log, like we did last year, so that they can see that they are practicing math for 5-10 minutes every night.

Every school day, they will need to ask someone (parent/guardian/babysitter) to initial the day to show that they did do the practicing.
