Dear Parents/Guardians and Students, 

Last week we completed pre-assessments for Math and Language Arts.  In the upcoming week, the students will begin a new unit in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science.We are off to a great start in the new school year!  I am excited to be a part of your child's education and spiritual growth in our Lord Jesus!

Schedules have been distributed to the students and parents. 

Specials will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Reminder:  Please dress for P.E. on these days. 

Please look for new vocabulary words each week.  Rather than spelling, the students will begin learning common prefixes, roots, and suffixes to expand their overall vocabulary.  Vocabulary will be taught in Language Arts and quizzes will be given in correlation to the Literature selection. This week we will study sentence structure in grammar.  

Math: we will continue to investigate how we use algebra in our everyday lives.

American History and Science will be taught this school year together with adjoining classes.
