Coyotes- 2nd November Update

November 16, 2018


Dear Coyotes Families,


During the last few weeks, we have had many new lessons such as : Squaring & Cubing, Measuring the Circumference of a Circle and Calculating Pi, Transitive & Intransitive Verbs, Types of Underground Stems, Compound Tenses, Operations with Exponential Notation, Equivalent Fractions, Fractions with Uncommon Denominators, Salsa Music, The Story of Written Language, and the Timeline of Human Beings. We have also been working on writing skills….everything from identifying sentences, creating interesting and varied sentences, to writing summaries and creating detailed outlines.  Students have been learning how to peer edit and self-edit writing passages.  Students gave presentations on Hedgehogs, China, Shells, and Sea Life.


 COMMUNITY SERVICE:  Feed My Starving Children

We went to Feed My Starving Children for our annual community service outing.  The students did such an amazing job packing food boxes.  During our 2 ½ hours there, we packed 127 boxes of food, which is enough to feed 75,  children for a whole year!!!!!!  Thank you so much to all the parents who attended and helped seal the food pouches. We loved having you with us.  The students are already planning another trip there!  Thank you for supporting the service efforts of your students!!



Thanks to all of you who RSVP’d and signed up to bring items for our Fall Potluck in the Park, Noodle Night.   We will meet at Desert Foothills Park at 6:00 pm.  Bring a warm jacket and your appetite…. Hope to see you then!



We are still looking for homes for our pets during Thanksgiving & Winter Break.  If you can help, please let me know.
