WHAT'S GOING ON????
SCHOOL DELAYS AND CLOSINGS
Remember that there is always the possibility of school delays and closings due to fog or other inclement weather. If the weather looks questionable, listen to WKVI or watch one of the South Bend television stations for updates on school delays or cancellations. The corporation has also implemented an automated message system. If you do not receive a phone call on a delay or cancellation, contact the middle school office and let them know.
*****THE SCHOOL DOES NOT SERVE BREAKFAST WHEN THERE IS A DELAY.
We are using the "Read Naturally" system this year. Students will "cold read" the passage on Monday, and then practice it daily. They will also bring a copy of the passage home to practice every night. They will then have a final read on Friday. Our goal is to improve our percentage of readily known words and improve our reading ability.
We will be working on a number of units dealing with shopping store math and restaurant math. Students will learn to read menus and look for items in the store. They will also work on math problems using money.
Work at Home: Money - Penny, Nickel, Dime, Quarter. Be able to identify them and tell their amounts.
We are working on our signatures. Practice writing first names in cursive. This is very important as we move ahead and start learning about banking, accounts and other legal documents.
RECREATION AND LIESURE
We always welcome art and craft supplies that may be lying around not being used. We do many holiday crafts and could use anything from fabric to paint, and old magazines. Thanks!!!
