Can you believe February is here? I wonder if Puxsutawney Phil will see his shadow on Friday? I hear snow will be in the air that day.
In an effort to improve students' fluency, accuracy, and automaticity with basic math facts, I have added another math Website for students to practice - XtraMath. I will send home a letter about math practice and how to access XtraMath at home. I encourage all students to practice basic facts on a regular basis at home!
Fisk's Winter School Store is open for business this week! 2nd graders may shop on Monday or Thursday before school.

I encourage all students to dress in layers in the classroom. A light sweatshirt or sweater is good for keeping the chill away and is easily removed when it's warm. However, it's not good for the children to wear their outside coats or jackets in the classroom when they are cold. Please help your child dress comfortably.
And, a gentle reminder... please label children's winter gear. We're always looking for lost gloves, misplaced hats, and mistaking one student's belongings for someone else's.
With very few exceptions, toys should not be brought to school. This includes stuffed animals, Squishies, dolls, and small toys like Shopkins. Thank you!
