MATH: We continued chapter 6. We focused on relating subtraction and division, making models for division, and relating multiplication and division (inverse operations).

READING & LANGUAGE ARTS: In literacy centers, we read Hansel and Gretel, and focused on inferences and summarizing. In Grammar, we learned about past and present tense verbs & subject verb agreement. Students also reviewed how to use quotations marks for dialogue use.

SCIENCE: We continued chapter 5 about plants and animals. Students learned about how living things adapt to environments and how evironments change over time.

SOCIAL STUDIES: This week, we learned about the federal, state, and local government. Students used a graphic organizer to take notes for each level of the government.

2- You have likely already heard about “Decatur-Con 2018,” Decatur’s primary fundraiser and parents-only party of the year! The question now is, are you aware of how easy it is to help show your support?

Parent support is vital to Decatur students’ success, and our annual Spring Gala offers some special opportunities to help them. Read on to find out more!

With only 3 months to go, we could use your help in getting community donations from your friends and loved ones with businesses around town, places you frequent, centers where your kiddos take lessons . . . you get the idea!

We also are looking for businesses to sponsor our event as well. The minimum sponsorship level is $300, which will allow for signage at the event, a shout-out on our donation page, etc.

Attached you’ll find a letter and donation form for any businesses you plan to solicit.  Please feel free to reach out to Tara or Voni, our Spring Gala Co-Chairs, with any questions.
