From the Principal:
Perhaps you have heard your child talk
about Rocket Math (or Otter Creek Math) and
you are wondering what that is about (Grades 1
and 2). Students work on mastering their math
facts by practicing orally with a partner for
several minutes prior to taking a timed (one
minute) test. Each student has a personal goal (so
many math facts correct in one minute, based on
writing speed). When a student reaches that
goal, he/she moves onto the next level. When a
student does not reach that goal after three
attempts, he/she goes back to the previous level.
Students keep track of their progress on their
Rocket Math folder. Once addition is mastered,
subtraction facts are begun. Students continue
with this program at East Elementary, and
hopefully master multiplication and division as
well. It is our goal that all students have
mastered both addition and subtraction facts
before leaving second grade. How can you help?
Talk with your child about his/her personal goal
(number of correct answers in a minute), and
practice with your child, as they do bring home
their completed worksheets.

Fun Outdoor Play
Looking for some outdoor fun that both your children and nature will enjoy? Create a
snowy self-portrait that doubles as a tasty treat for animals that may stop by to admire and sample your work. Start by making a body print in the snow, then fill in the
shape with birdseed and bread and vegetable pieces. For clothing, spray colored water
from a squirt bottle using food coloring.
Yummy Melted Frosty
South Parents Club
Warm up on a snowy winter day with a
warm, melted snowman! Start with warm
milk, adding 2 teaspoons of sugar per cup.
Pour the mixture into mugs, stir 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract into each, then
top with a dollop of whipped cream. Float
a candy corn nose and chocolate chips for
the smile and eyes. Serve the drink immediately—your child will enjoy the tasty
melted snowman.
Join us for our next meeting, Thursday,
Feb. 2nd at 7:00 p.m. in the Teachers
Lounge at South Elementary. We are
planning the upcoming Family Game Night,
an evening of fun games with family and
friends while enjoying a snack. Events
like this bring families and our school together and are made possible by the generosity, creativity and efforts of all of
our parents—Come find out how you can
be a part of it all!
