I’m so happy to be back with my class. They have grown lots. We have a full week before spring break.
The school store will be open every morning this week.

It's Exceptional Children's Week -
STEM showcase - we are creating Math games
Exceptional Children's speaker
Mrs. Woolley returns :)
~~~Join us for Math Night on March 24, 2016! It takes place at the Publix on Shallowford Road (at Johnson Ferry Rd.) from 5-7:00 p.m. Math Night presents students with an opportunity to extend their mathematical understanding in a real-world context. Parents get a first-hand look at how their children apply understanding and may even learn something new themselves. Students see that Math is relevant and fun, and we all connect with a great resource and partner in education. The Papa John’s pizza truck will sell pizzas for $10 a pie. Pick one (or more!) up for dinner.
Teachers at the front of the store distribute grade-level problems, clipboards, and pencils. Kids and their parents then go on a scavenger hunt to answer questions. The answer sheet acts as a homework pass for the following day. Be sure to download a QR code reader so kids can check their answers. Please note: Teachers will have a few extra sheets for students who have a conflict on Thursday night but who wish to complete the scavenger hunt and problems over the weekend. Any students completing the task over the weekend should submit their sheets on Monday; teachers will work with those students to arrange for a homework pass.
