Hello SGES Families!
We finally had some snow and temperatures that allowed students to go out and play! They loved playing in the snow and are looking forward to more! At our whole school assembly yesterday, Mrs. Tynan’s class demonstrated the 5 items students need to play in the snow: boots, snowpants, mittens or gloves, jacket and hat/hood. We do try to get students out whenever we can and the conditions are right.
In school, students have been learning so much. Students are honing their reading skills and working on comprehension of what they have read. They can tell us the main characters and settings and are learning more about themselves as readers. Students are also using numbers to add and subtract, shapes and solving problems.
Students also continue to earn Golden Tickets for doing the right thing and being kind. We have earned so many tickets already this year, that we may fill the Golden Ticket tube before the end of the year!
