Fall Break Part 2

Arcadia & Chaisongkram

Parents,

Today, students received their Fall Break Reading Logs.  Also, the optional CA Regions assignment is attached to their Homework Calendar.

We would like to remind ALL parents that students knowing their multiplication facts is a strong indicator in future success in math.  So, we have sent home a times tables copy as one method for your student to practice.  Please work on this daily with your student if he or she does not know her multiplication facts.

Thank you for your support!
