Lost Dog!

December 6, 2017

Below is a photograph of a dog lost in the Carson neighborhood last night. She is microchipped, but not wearing her collar. If you see her, would you please try to get her to a vet or shelter?

Thank you!

Students in the after school group will do Lexia, Dreambox, and typing in addition to written skill builders and small group work. Please follow teacher directions for each day to find out what your assignment is.

Friday, January 15th was Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. I am sure many of you are learning about this important American in your classes. This week, you have the opportunity to listen to his most famous speech during your group time!

Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech

Video: “The Man Who Changed America”

Photographs and Biographical Essay on National Geographic.com

Typing Resources:

Those of you with fewer Lexia minutes per week need to be working on typing skills for your in-class writing assignments as well as for the SBAC in the Spring! Please click on the following link for online typing activities to practice with:

Finally, remember that there’s no school on Monday in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. We will be back in class on Tuesday, January 19th!
