~Quotes of the Month~ "Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." -- Marva Collins

Also we had five families that generously donated money to our schools research program. With their donations, we will be able to use the money to buy new microscopes, goggles, lab coats and new glass wear. A thank-you card for each family will be available at the front office if anyone is interested in signing.

Sudoku Time!

Mathematics As I’m sure most of you have heard, there has been a change in the math curriculum this year. We ask all parents to provide your child with a basic scientific calculator as we will be introducing them to basic functions. Calculators can be purchased through the school for $20 or they are on average approximately $25 in stores. Thanks for your cooperation!
