How the World Works – materials – The first graders have begun some investigations into solids and liquids. We are working on the properties of both. Ask your child about the words that they can use when describing solids and liquids. 

Writing – The students are slowly getting into their “How to” writing.  Ask your child what process they are/will be writing about and help them with ideas for the book they have in mind.  

Math – We are working on 2D and 3D shapes in math. Have your child go on a shape hunt at home. What shapes can he/she find? How many faces (flat surfaces) are there? Can you count edges and vertices (corners or points)? Can you find a cube, cone, cylinder, rectangular prism, pyramid, and sphere?

Attention New Students and any who missed school photos! – Those who have not had their photo taken because they started late or were away that day should wear formal uniforms on Tuesday or Wednesday for their photo.

A note from PE:  We have looked at the weather and it is not going to be cold enough for long enough to build a rink this year. Ice skating during PE is canceled for this year. If for some reason this changes we will let you know. We know how much the students enjoy this experience and hopefully next year we will have a colder winter. There are many rinks in the city that are still functioning, it could be a great family outing. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

A note from Penguin Life: Ice skating after school activities will be held indoors with perhaps some outdoor activities. If parents decide to cancel ASA for their kids, they should notify Penguin Life.
