crater lake in winterMonday, April 4th is our next field trip. We are going to snowshoe at Crater Lake!  We leave school at 8:00 sharp, so please have your student to school on time.  We return at 5:oo, please have arrangements made to pick up your student then.  We are eating lunch there, so a sack lunch is needed.  If you need the school to provide a sack lunch please let me know.  At this point I only have 1 volunteer and could use at least 5 more.  If you’d like to skip work and come play in the snow, let me know!

Conference update

Dear Parents and Families,

Due to an unforeseen issue, we’ve had to adjust our conference and exhibition schedule.  Exhibition has been moved to Wednesday, March 16th from 1 to 2:30 and 6 to 7:30.  Traditional conference slots are available on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.  If either of these days works for you and you would still like a traditional conference, please contact me at and we’ll work something out.

Welcome to 2016!

Image result for snowy mountains        Welcome to 2016!  This is always my favorite time during the school year.  This chunk, January to March, is the longest uninterrupted time of the school year.  This is when I see the most exciting gains in our kids.  It is also a great time to check and restock school supplies.  Please take a few minutes to check in with your student and make sure they have what they need, and that their binders are clean and organized.

Students are making the next rotation in their Language Arts and Math classes this week.  The new math unit is fractions.  The best way to help your student through this unit is to make they are confident with the multiplication table.  This speeds up the reducing fractions and creating common denominators.

Finally, we have a field trip coming up in a few weeks.  January 19th we travel to Science Works in Ashland.  More to come on this trip soon!

Happy New Year!

December Update

by on Dec.14, 2015, under Uncategorized

Dear Parents and Families,

Wow! December 14th already! It seems like September was just yesterday. We are days away from Winter Break and soon the new year.
​Tomorrow, we walk down to Crater for a performance of the Nutcracker. Thursday is our awards assembly at 8:45. On Friday we will have an informal, low key party at the end of the day. We will watch a Christmas movie and have snacks. We could use some plates, napkins, tortilla chips, and drinks. Please let me know if you can help us out with any of these.

Thank you,

Dear Parents and Families!

March is here!  Spring break is right around the corner.  With that brings spring conferences.  I will be sending home a conference time with your student Monday, March 2nd.  If the time indicated does not work for you, please check the schedule below and email with an open time that does.  Please remember that Tuesday is a school day so the open times before 2:30 are filled with our kiddos.  Also I will need to leave by 3:30 on Thursday for a family engagement.  Thank you for your understanding.

One more thing.  Friday began our 2nd annual Sportsmanship Field Hockey Tournament.  I’ve attached the schedule below.  Parents are always welcome to attend.

Take care.

Happy New Year!

Dear Parents and Families-


2015 is here!  This is my favorite time of the school year.   Please take some time to double check your student’s school supplies.  I’ve noticed that students are running low on pencils and lined notebook paper for their binders.  At the beginning of the year, I instructed students to put only what they needed in their binders and to take the rest home.  Now is a good time to dip into those reserves.

Prior to the break I asked the kids to read a book over the break.  They were told that they would need to think of a creative way to present their book to the class.  The reports were not due today, only the completion of their book.  Presentations will begin Tuesday 1-20.  The link below takes you to a list of 150 different ways for students to present a book other than the standard written report. I will go over this assignment in more detail in class.
