3.       Java with Gina will be held this Wednesday, 2/4 at 9:00am in the science lab. I will have the author of Macaroni and Cheese talking about her workshop and her book. Also, I have invited the Behaviorists that are guiding and directing the Anti-Bullying program in second grade to introduce the program. I will be including a conversation about our Parent Math Night and discussing our districts next steps to insure fidelity in our math programs district wide.  

I hope that you all had a nice 3 day weekend. Our teachers worked diligently with 4 publishers to begin the process of selecting a new math program for next year. The day was a success!

Thank you in advance to all of the families that will have the chance to participate in our events this week. We are a great school because of our teachers, our students, and the wonderful support of our parents!
