April Award Winners

Character: Respectful – Samier
Samier has worked on respectfulness with his peers more and more. I am so proud of how much of a leader he has become over the course of this year.

Math:   Acacia
Acacia has really worked hard and tried on her math facts and even though she has struggled with some concepts, but has NEVER given up!

Writing:   Jadon
Jadon has come a long way with his writing. He has slowed down to make sure he is not making simple mistakes. It is such a joy to read his writing and the imagination he has is outstanding!

Congratulations to our winners from last month! They all strived for their best in each area. Keep up the great work!

May’s Character Count- Caring

How to Help at Home
It is important that we work together at school and at home on all aspects of education. Please remember your student, at this point in the year, should be responsible and held accountable for all things below.

  • Study Habits-
    • Established and happening every day
    • Be sure to study every night and not “cram” the night before for tests or quizzes
  • Homework-
    • Should be done over the weekend and NOT done Monday night in a hurry.
    • Please come in and ask immediately if you did not understand something.
  • Work Ethic-
    • We are in the final stretch! Let’s stay strong!
    • With testing ending in May, we have to make sure we are getting a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast in our bellies!

We can do it!!  Almost there!

Contact me with any questions or concerns:  through email, sending a note, or phone.  I will get back to you as soon as possible!
