 Math SuperStars:

Have you been frustrated or confused about how to best track the minutes your student is doing on Khan Academy for Math SuperStars? We have a new solution that will make it easier for you. You will be able to see the minute total over any range you choose in the same way that we see it. Visit our website for step by step instructions on how to do it! 

It’s time for the Stars!  Once students complete 140 mins on Khan Academy they will have earned their MSS Star.  Look for those to go up in the hallway beginning Tuesday.

 The final reward period of the 1st semester is coming up.  Your student will receive a coupon for a free ice cream cone at Baskin Robbins if they have reached 200 mins on Khan Academy by Nov 17.

 Staff Appreciation: 

Nov. 17th is pie day…we’ll be sending out a sign up for pies & volunteers. Every staff member will receive a pie from PTA/school in Thanksgiving of them & all they do!

  • Message from Homeroom Parents:
