Hats for Haiti: Help us support the victims of the earthquake in Haiti by participating in “Hats for Haiti” on Friday, January 22nd. Students will pay $1.00 to wear a hat to school on that day. Please try to bring in the donations by Thursday.

Friday: I will not be at school on Friday because I will attending a math workshop at the Frostig Center in Pasadena. The substitute for the day will be Debbie Diss.  She will also be the substitute before spring break when I leave for my honeymoon. This workshop is a 2 day workshop and I will also be gone on Friday, February 26th (same substitute). The workshop has been postponed to February so I will be at school on Friday. 

Word group: The students did a great job on their test last Friday. Since this week is a short week this week, we will not learn a new word group this week. Next week we will learn about the word group –an.
