I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things, and we’re off to a great start in math as we explore measuring weight and liquid volume. I will be sending home newsletters with helpful information about each topic we cover, explaining many of the methods we’re using to solve problems.
Exciting news from CPS this month: In conjunction with The Chicago City of Learning (CCOL), CPS is launching CPS Connects–an online platform that provides students free virtual learning opportunities, as well as live activities outside their schools and neighborhoods! Driven by the student’s specific interests, the experience allows students to take ownership of their own learning experiences. What can students do? Claim Your Account (Jan. 5‐30th)!!
