Questions about the Recent Guidance Regarding Day Ski Trips:
Administrators and school nurses throughout the East Bay Region meet with their RIDOH team every other week..
RIDOH equates day ski trips to red states such as MA. & NH or Maine to a sports travel team traveling to play in an out of state game.
Currently, this is not allowed by the state, members of the team would be forced to quarantine.
This is the case with ski trips, the rules and guidelines are meant to keep us safe and well.

Teaching and Learning:
In the upcoming months, the majority of our first graders discover the magic of reading.
An important component of reading is rapid recognition of high frequency words and sight words.
Sight words are common words kids have to recognize instantly without sounding them out.
Recognizing words by sight helps kids become faster, more fluent readers.
Many sight words are tricky to read and spell—they aren’t spelled the way they sound.
Kindergarten: be, but, do, have, he, she, they, was, what, with
First grade: after, again, could, from, had, her, his, of, then, when
Second grade: around, because, been, before, does, don’t, goes, right, which, write
Third grade: better, carry, eight, laugh, light, myself, only, own, shall, together
Have a great weekend!
