It's hard to believe we are already in December! We are very busy this very short month - we will be completing our Planetary Science unit, beginning our Geometry/Measurement Unit, and publishing a Hero's Journey Narrative. We are looking forward to wrapping up our EL module with this writing project and enjoying an opportunity to see how The Lightning Thief movie compares to the novel. We plan to squeeze in an art project and a classroom auction as well!

I appreciate the time you take to support your child with positive study habits and learning behaviors. December is always a challenging month for focusing on learning, but I don't want students to lose sight of why we are working hard every day - all of this work is in support of them achieving the goals and dreams for their future. That takes focus and persistence, and we'll make sure to have some fun along the way.

Please feel free to call or email if you have any questions or concerns.
