Money or checks should be brought into the school and either given to a teacher or to the secretary. Any unsold can be brought back into the office as well or if you'd like extra sent home, please let us know. Thank you!
GIFT CARDS – RAISE RIGHT
Scrip is a great way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards and the school receives money back to put towards field trips and activities.
This is a yearlong fundraiser and cards can be bought at any time.

Mrs. Eckstrand’s Room
Last week, our Jesus story talked about the wise men following the star and bringing gifts to Jesus. This week, we heard about Jesus going to church. He was teaching the teachers about God's word. We too want to rejoice when we can go to church. "Lord, I love your House" is our memory treasure this week.
In Science this week we talked about cooling down and heating up and what that process does to things like water, chocolate, eggs, etc. Does it cause a reversible change or non-reversible change.
In Movement we are moving outside just like all the arctic animals do.
Preschool: Our number this week is 16. "Long line down, back to the top, one big curl to pick up sticks. 16 lickity licks!" Our letter this week is Bb for balloons, boat, Bible, bed and bananas.
Kindergarten: In Math we took a Ch 5 test. We will begin Ch 6 which is comparing numbers equal/more/less from 1-10. In Reading we finished test 4. We will meet a new superkid, Icky. Icky likes to get information from TV and use his imagination to make his own shows. End of quarter is this week so K will be completing their Q2 reports.
Mrs. Utsch’s Room
In 1st grade Math we used different strategies to solve word problems and wrote equations to model word problems. In Reading we identified short and long vowel sounds and decoded CVCe words.
In 2nd Math we decomposed-broke numbers apart to add and subtract. In Reading class, we associated kn with /n/ and wr with /r/, completed sentences using homophones, used prefixes in sentences, and completed sentences in a paragraph.
In 3rd grade Math we identified number patterns on an addition table, used mental math to add and subtract 2 and 3-digit numbers, and used the Commutative Property and Associative Property to find the sum of addends. In Reading we are reading the novel “Ramona Quimby, Age 8” by Beverly Cleary.
In Religion we heard how Jesus led Peter, James, and John see his glory to remind them that he is the Son of God. God’s Word teaches that Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus reminded his disciples that he was the Son of God, who would suffer, die, and rise so that they could go to heaven. Jesus comforts us with the news that he suffered, died, and rose so that we can go to heaven.
