Common Core Literacy Standard Focus
We were highlighing Common Core Literacy Standard #4 throughout the month of April. We often express our standards with "I Can" statements.
CC Standard #4- I can determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings, while determining the tone of the work based on word choice.
Take a moment and discuss what this means with your student. Ask your child to demonstrate these skills to you and assist them if needed.

Ten for Ten Donation
What is 10 for 10?
$1 per student/family for each of the 10 months of school = $10 for 10 months. It's that simple! No magazines, no wrapping paper, no cookie dough, no asking your friends and family to buy stuff. We're just asking families to make a simple donation to support our school. Any donation amount is accepted.
1) You can make a yearly donation, or smaller donations throughout the year.
2) Just send your donation to the office in an envelope to the "PTSO."
Where does the10 for 10 money go?
It's hard to find a bargin these days, but Ten for Ten is a pretty good one. Just $10 supports programs and buys supplies for each of your students. Our initial focus with donations will be equipping our classrooms with electric pencil sharpeners! The PTSO has also purchased the mascot costume, bought a giant parachute for the PE department, hosted the middle school dance and math night, purchased advanced technology for the teachers to share, held a parent program, Literary Week and a book drive. That's just to name a few and we have more to come.
