One team, Zachary and Nathan are currently in 3rd place, another, Anthony and Antonio are in 11th while Aiden and Olivia made up a lot of ground and are currently in 26th place. This is amazing considering we are talking about 489 teams spanning grades 4 through 8! Congrats folks and keep up the hard work!

Our students did a wonderful job on their winter MAP tests.  Next week we will be sending home your child’s results.  During conferences in January the staff will meet with you and your child and discuss their results, their goals and strategies to for the rest of the year in both reading and math.

During the winter break we hope that you have a wonderful time celebrating the holidays.   Enjoy making some fun family memories together.  Over the break we hope students continue reading.  If parents are looking for some academic activities board games are a wonderful family activity that can also support math skills and problem solving.  Students can write about their wonderful activities and share them with their teachers when they return on the 5th of January.

Rivera’s Rap…

You can tell by the hats, gloves and scarves that December has arrived!  This month we only have three weeks of school and then we will be off for the winter break.  The staff is busy ensuring that the three weeks are filled with learning and engaging activities up to the 19th of December.   During our two week winter break we are really  hoping that our students are reading, working on their math facts, and hopefully visiting the library.


Holiday Gift Mart
Our Holiday Gift Mart is almost here!  This year the event will take place at Anne Fox School on the 13th of December.  Invitations and response letters were sent home before Thanksgiving.  If you haven’t sent in your response, please send that in as soon as possible.  We need to ensure that we will be able to have the correct number of toys for parents to purchase.  If you are unable to locate your response letter please call the school office and we will send that home with your child.  Response letters need to be here by Monday, the 8th.


Holiday Celebration
Monday December 8th is our Holiday Celebration.  The PTA will be hosting this event from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m..  If you haven’t preordered your pasta dinner you can still purchase a pasta dinner at the door for $6.00.  That evening families can also bring their cameras and take a picture with Santa or visit our Holiday Store.  This is a fun event for the whole family.

Recently, we have seen an increase in the number of lunches that parents have been bringing to school.  We do have coolers that are placed outside our building that parents can drop off a child’s lunch if they forget to bring it with them that day.  We encourage students to bring their lunch to school so they can start eating right when their lunch period begins.
