Ninja Math Fact Fluency

Math Ninja Quiz Thursday!

Room 104 students brought home +1 flashcards on Monday. Please practice together to prepare for Thursday’s timed test. Use IXL, flashcards, or math apps to practice addition facts 0-10 daily. We will continue to have weekly timed quizzes to master math fact fluency. Fact fluency is critical to your child’s future success in math. Upper-grade students struggling with basic math facts cannot accurately complete the long algorithms commonly found in algebra classes. Practice now to prepare your child for future learning!

Chinese Program Update

 

Dear Parents,

A lottery was conducted by the administrative team to determine enrollment in the Chinese After School Program. Only 7 first graders were chosen. You will have received a paper letter and a robo-phone call to inform you of your child’s acceptance. If you have not received these messages your child will be sent home today via their usual transportation. Any questions or concerns should be directed to Ms.Caudill. ( sacaudill.cps.edu 773-534-5845)

Thank you,

Kate
