Students can access Dreambox from any computer through this web address: https://play.dreambox.com/login/6twa/greena or an I-pad. To access DreamBox on an iPad, search for "DreamBox Math" in the App Store. When prompted in the app, use our School Code: 6twa/greena . Students know how to log into their accounts. We're finding that they enjoy the time and it is having a positive effect on their math proficiency. You can even set up a parent account so you can see how your child is progressing with their math practice. We hope you'll check it out and encourage your kids to login from home. This individualized, blended learning enhancement to the classroom instruction was paid for with Land Trust money appropriated by our Community Council.
Cold weather reminders. We hold indoor recess when it is 20 degrees and below or in extreme weather conditions. In the morning students may wait in the main hallway and cafeteria. Please send students with coats and accessories for recess.
Speaking of coats and accessories, there are a lot of items in our lost and found. Please check for your child’s lost items, we will be sending unclaimed items to charity at Christmas Break.
We will have our sledding party incentive for students that meet their reading goal over the Christmas Break. A reading calendar will be sent home the week of Christmas break, it will also be available on our website.

Derek Knight provided two 'Buddy Benches' for our school as his Eagle Scout Project. With the help of his family and troop, Derek researched the project, raised the money, and ordered the benches. With the help of our counselor, Mrs. Ramage and our 2015-16 peer leaders he made this video introducing the purpose of the buddy bench.
Thanks to Derek, we'll have these awesome benches reminding us to reach out and include each other for many years to come.
