Welcome back from Mid Winter Break!

Sorry, once again, for the delay in renewing the website and posting a new message-- I was taking a fancy to seeing our new President's face each time I logged onto the website. :) Thanks to my Mom and to Kevin for reminding me to update.
Congrats to Alan, Irene, Nina, Marco, Betsabe, Isa, Kaiji and Athena for working on Study Island during the break!!! You guys ROCK. I hope you have also enjoyed the spectacular weather we have had lately!

It'll be so great to see the class next week!! In the next week we'll be preparing ourselves to go to the symphony at Benaroya Hall for the 10:30a show on Friday the 27th. It will be SUCH a treat-- especially for students who have never heard a live performance of a big time orchestra. Prepare to have your socks knocked off!

SCORES will resume on Monday after school this week, and go for six afternoons: the 23rd, 24th and 25th, and then again on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th. We're all bummed that we can't have a longer SCORES session this spring, but due to the lack of funding, we have to settle on only six days. College Kicks will take place later in the Spring.

I'm seeing some big improvements with many of the kids coming to Math Breakfast Club. Remember, the club is on Thursday mornings from 8:30 to 9am. During that time I can work closely with kids that are struggling with the math unit we are currently working on.

Check out the March F3 calendar as we have more field trips coming up. More about those in the next posting. In the meantime, click on the composers' names to the right to learn information about each one. Also, as it turns out we have lots more seats than we need for the concert. Parents, please call if you can come on the 27th!
