02/02/2020 - February Update

Hope you all enjoyed Super Bowl (even though the wrong team won). You are allowed to have a different opinion though, even if it’s the wrong one. It’s okay. Anyways… Happy February! As of today we are officially half-way through the school year. That happened fast. Also, yesterday had a kinda cool calendar moment happen - Happy Palindrome Day! In the middle of yesterday’s Super Bowl pregame show we had the clock hit 2:02 which meant the full calendar would have read 2:02 PM, 02/02/2020 (oh and my house number just so happens to be 20). My wife looked at me...

Two Decades of Gr3! - January Update

Little did we know but we’ve been in the third grade for two decades. Yikes.

We’ve got an exciting month ahead and so here’s a quick run down on what we’ll be up to. Oh and yes, we’ll do it with 2020 vision (been waiting years for this joke so just let me have it).

Go Time - October Update

Happy October! What a month. We survived and it went by in a second. As I mentioned earlier, I will be sending out monthly email updates, both with important dates for that month, as well as curricular info we will be covering, allowing you want to follow up at home. In doing so I hope to provide you with links, resources and general information so that you can know where we’ve been and what we have coming up. I try and keep the number of emails to a minimum but these updates are ones that are important for you all to read.
Also, just a heads up that...
