Week 10: Lakota Native Americans


This week we will be holding Parent Teacher conferences on Wednesday. Please see the email to sign up for a time to meet. If you have not yet, you can pick up a physical copy of your report card at the school on Monday and Tuesday from 9:00-4:30pm.

This week we will be continuing our celebration of Native American Heritage Month by focusing on the Lakota tribe. We will have a sight word review of all our previously tested sight words to see how the students are progressing.

Make sure to log your student in every day, every session, on time. Our attendance went up this week because of your hard work. Keep it up!

We will be starting a new Reading unit this week. This unit will focus on student’s reading strategies. Students will meet Reader Man, and learn all about his Reading Super Powers.
