The first nine-weeks sure did fly by here at H. M. Pearson Elementary School! Our students have done a wonderful job academically and they are reading up a storm! Math has become our instructional focus this school year and our staff is working hard to include mathematical concepts in all areas of learning. Please take the time to integrate math into your daily activities so your children can see the practical side of numbers.
Even though we have been very busy learning tons of new information during the first quarter of the year, we have still managed to have lots of fun as well! Several of our students participated in the Extra-Mile Run in early October, lots of families enjoyed dinner at Chipotle for the PTO fundraiser, and we all had a wonderful time at the Fall Festival.
Be sure to check the November calendar carefully because we have several exciting events coming up this month. Remember school is closed on Tuesday, November 4th for Election Day. We have a wonderful Veteran's Day assembly scheduled for Tuesday, November 11th at 2:00 p.m. and the second grade performance is slated for Tuesday evening, November 18th at 7:00 p.m. Our Thanksgiving Break begins on Wednesday, November 25th and students will return to school on Monday, December 1st.
We look forward to seeing all of you on Monday, November 3rd at Parent Conferences! Enjoy every day in November and spend as much time as possible with your children!
