Week #17 Message

Happy New Year! I hope the break and new year is giving us all a fresh and rejuvenated start.

Multiplication Facts
Beginning this week we'll be working on our multiplication facts. We'll start by memorizing the multiplication facts for the twos and each succeeding week we will work on a different number family. We have been learning the multiple songs and other strategies to help with the memorization. Today your child should bring home their 2's multiplication flash cards. Please spend some time each day helping them review and memorize these.

I had to make some last minute changes to this weeks homework and didn't have it ready to send home on Tuesday. Your child should bring their homework packet home today. Sorry for the delay.

Looking Ahead
9-22 Jan — Sign-up window for SEP Conferences
16 Jan — No School Martin Luther King holiday
25-26 Jan — Parent/Teacher conferences
