Hello parents. We are so close to Mardi Gras break. We have recently begun reading The Egypt Game. Ask you students about what they remember about the story so far. In Math we are beginning a new unit. It is all about how addition and subtraction are related, multiplication and division are related, and how mulitplication and division are related to addition and subtraction. State testing is right around the corner. We will begin practicing for it in the afternoons. Please be sure that during testing students get a good night's rest. I am enjoying this school year and can't believe how quickly it is going by.
