Happy New Year

Greetings Resolute Montessori Families,

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday.  Though I enjoyed family, friends, and naps during break, I was happy to see everyone back at school yesterday.  We got 2019 kicked off with some discussions about how to make the classroom a peaceful and joyful place.  Then we went straight into independent math work.  This was the students choice, so I’m thinking it’s going to be a good year.

Since this is a short week and we’ve been gone, I’ll keep this short.  We are taking STAR assessments today and tomorrow.  We also have our resident Trout in the Classroom liaison, Mrs. Larson, coming in today to teach us about the hatchery our rainbow trout are coming from.

Finally, we have some upcoming events.  On 8 January, we are suppose to go ice fishing in the morning.  However, the ice on the reservoir is about six inches and we need it to be ten.  That probably means that we will postpone until February.  We’ll know for certain on Monday.  Either way we would love to have some adult family members join us, so please let me know if you are interesting.  Then, the fifth grade students will be going skiing 16 January.  Mr. S. sent home paperwork for the trip yesterday, and would like it back no later than Monday, 7 January.

Thanks for reading.  As always, if you have any questions please let me know.
