    Hello Parents!


    Our Valentine’s Day party is tomorrow, February 14th, please have your child bring in a large box or bag already decorated to collect their class valentines. We will NOT have time in class to decorate. Our party will be at 1:45-2:30. Thank you!


    It’s also Ashley Falls’ School Wide SPIRIT DAY! Wear red, pink and white on Friday, February 14th!


    Remember! There is NO SCHOOL February 17-21. Enjoy your time with friends and family!

    PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES: Your child’s teacher will be contacting you soon to schedule the spring March conference to review your child’s progress in school.


    What are we learning in school?

    Students are focusing on fractions of a set of numbers. For example, “If I have 24 students, and one third of them are out sick, how many students are out sick?” Students need to be faster with knowing their multiplication facts 1-12. The goal is to know each one within 3 seconds.


    During language arts, students read two sources on how animals protect themselves, and they are writing a narrative using details from those two sources. In social studies, students are looking at the history of San Diego County. In poetry/art, students are writing poems to someone they love. In Empower Hour students are using their interest surveys and vision boards to generate ideas for a passion project.  Students are creating ”thick questions” to help guide their research and projects.  In science, students will discuss how to help fix some major problems the San Elijo Lagoon is facing and begin a Design Thinking Activity.


    Students can access Dreambox, Typing Club and Wonders at home. They will use their DMUSD log in and password and must go through this site from DMUSD to get into Clever to access the curriculum: https://www.dmusd.org/site/Default.aspx?PageID=4835
