Happy birthday Mrs. Melinda Santos! Our third grade students are lucky to have such a fantastic and dedicated teacher. Wishing you a wonderful birthday today!
Community building activities are fun and help instill cooperation and kindness in students. This week first graders created a “spider web” with yarn as they shared an appreciation to a classmate.
Math tip for the week: Bake Something Together You can’t help but use math when you’re baking. Doubling recipes requires multiplying, halving a recipe requires dividing, and measuring a ½ cup or a ¼ teaspoon gets you working with easy fractions. At a more basic level, kids love counting out chocolate chips. (And so do the parents; we speak from experience!) Ask your child: How many chocolate chips do you think it will take to fill one cup? How many for 1/2 cup? Count together and see how close you came to the right answer! Source: https://www.naeyc.org/
Today is the Great Nevada ShakeOut. At 10:21 a.m. classes practiced drop, cover, and hold on to protect themselves in the event of an earthquake. Great job students and teachers! #2021greatnevadashakeout #earthquakedrill
Reading tip for the week: Read a child’s favorite book over and over again. This will provide positive reinforcement and your child will gain confidence as they are able to successfully recognize words. Source: http://www.k12reader.com/

Mrs. Renfroe's third grade class has been studying life cycles. In honor of Halloween, the class read the book “Pumpkin Jack”. They then carved their own class pumpkin, named Carl, and will watch the life cycle process until the end of the school year. The class will study him as he rots/decomposes, goes to mush and then comes back as a plant.

Go through your closets and dig out the coats, jackets, sweatshirts, snow pants, warm hats, gloves, and scarves that your family has outgrown or no longer needs. Give them a spin through the wash and drop them off at the Oasis Academy front office by November 18th. Donations will be distributed to those in need throughout our community. We will take any size or style, clean and gently used, or new if you prefer. If you have any questions, please email Racquel Feest, NJHS Advisor, firstname.lastname@example.org.
