Happy Monday! Welcome to the third week of school! By now, you should have gotten a permission slip about the Solar Eclipse. You would just need to return this form if you wish for your child to stay in the building that day or if you wish to check them out of school early or absent that day. Otherwise, I will assume you're okay with your child being dismissed at 3:40 and watching the Solar Eclipse with me outdoors! You're welcome to join me at this event as well! What an opportunity of a lifetime!
This week, I will begin to introduce centers for Math, as well as implementing our "7 Mindset" character program. On Wednesday, we will be taking the "Interim Test" to see how we can extend the progress of what your child already knows and expand their progress further ahead. For homework this week, please ask your child to log into their "Education Galaxy" on their Classlink. Under "Digital Content" inside Classlink's dashboard, you can help your child setup a Khan Academy account. I highly recommend these two programs for homework, since they are both differentiated to your child's math skills. Education Galaxy is differentiated for multiple subjects where Khan is only for math. I met Sal Khan back in California when I taught and he is an amazing mathematician who is dedicated to helping students succeed in math!

Have a great week!
