Please remember to check my newsletter monthly for the focus "I can" statements. The "I can" statements will be on my webpage for each quarter.
"I can" statements were written in student friendly language to target specific learning skills from our common core state standards. Your child will link these statements to learning on a daily basis. When you visit the classroom, you will see them posted on our whiteboard.

Here are just a few of the Learning Targets for Quarter 1:

..........................................................................................................................................
ERIN'S LAW:
Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be adding, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the school year. The curriculum is available in the school office for parents to preview.

The building social workers will be presenting this information to our class. Dates are TBD.
