We had a celebration of the end of quarter 1 and the success of getting our AR points. On Friday, we celebrated Flashlight Friday.

In November, we will be tested on knowledge of the basic prayers. We begin a study of landforms in Social Studies, and animals in Science. We continue subtraction in Math.
