Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you know, we are required by the new Erin's Law to provide lessons on sexual abuse and prevention education. In October Grand Prairie Elementary School Social Workers will be coming into our classroom to talk about the "Think First and Stay Safe" program. The lessons will cover the concepts of "Using My Built In Computer: Staying Healthy and Safe". In December, the second and final lesson, will be on "Laws Help Protect Me: Kids Have Rights Too!" and "Listening to My Instincts: No Secrets".

Should your child have any questions, you may refer to the handout that will be provided to them on the day of the lesson. If you have additional questions feel free to contact a School Social Worker – Morgan Bilthuis, Nichole Reiser, and Maribeth Fagan.


Miss Strutzenberg

I can statements for the week:

Reading–I can describe the structure of a story (beginning, middle, end.)

I can ask and answer questions to understand the key details of a text.

I can determine the meaning of unknown words.

Writing– I can write a narrative piece that focuses on a small moment, contains details and elaboration, and has a conclusion.

Math– I can understand that the three digits of a three digit number represent hundreds, tens, and ones.

I can write numbers in unit form, expanded form, and word form.

I can compare two three digit numbers using <,>,=.

Privacy Please!!

Due to privacy laws, we ask that you only take pictures of your own child when you are here at school. Please respect the privacy of those families that wish not to have their children photographed. We realize that capturing those memories are important and we truly appreciate your cooperation and understanding of this policy.
