I have been having problems with XtraMath so ALL Usernames have been changed to be your class number then your first name with no underscore or space.  I will also be sending home a note that will help you to connect with your students XtraMath account so you can see their progress.

Fact practice is kind of like brushing your teeth, it does more good when you do it every day instead of tons at once.  :)  Because of that, XtraMath practice only counts as once a day.  To get all three points, students must complete a full session on three separate days.

We are looking for parents to help with our field trip on next Tuesday, September 22nd.  To accompany us, parents must be able to stay for the entire trip (9:00 to 2:00ish) and may not bring any siblings.  Please let me know by Monday if you are interested in chaperoning this field trip.  Spaces will be filled at a first come first served basis.  You will also need to provide your own lunch for the day.
