- We are doing NWEA testing on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. These will test the kids in Math, Language Arts and Reading.
- We will not have a spelling test this week due to the NWEA testing.
- Please make sure that your child is bringing a healthy snack every day to school. We have quite a few that forget each day and I am out of the class snack that I had been providing.
- I would love to start having some volunteers come into the room. From what I understand you must have the PTA volunteer form signed and have your fingerprints done. As soon as you have done that and are interested in volunteering please let me know! I am looking for at least one volunteer on both Monday and Thursday mornings to read with the kids. Thanks so much!
Saturday Live is quickly approaching us! As a class we decided on the theme of Family Fun Night for our basket. Some of the ideas we talked about with this included movies (popcorn & blankets) and games (board games & outdoor games). I think that we can have a lot of fun with this theme and if you have any items that you would like to donate towards the basket please begin bringing them into school.

All About Me
This school year will mark my seventh year of teaching and I must say I am so blessed to be a part of such a great community at Arrowhead school. I am excited to begin a new year with a wonderful group of kids!! I grew up in Helena and attended college in Bozeman, MT at MSU. Go Bobcats! While there I obtained a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Reading. In 2016 I received a masters degree in Education Leadership. Six years ago I married my high school sweetheart, Tymon. We also have a five year old adorable mini australian shepherd puppy, Molly. This year we are also welcoming our first child in February and we are so excited to be parents! When I am not teaching I love to be outside enjoying hiking trails or taking in a sporting event.
