Dear Parents,

The way your children are being taught to critically think and interact with text is vastly different than the reading groups many of us experienced when we were in school. Leslie Nash, an expert in Readers and Writers workshop, has worked with our teachers on the implementation of both the writing and reading program. On Thursday Leslie will be hosting a parent education on Readers workshop. I highly recommend all parents attend this Thursday.

CP Hosting a Math Competition: We are pleased to tell you that your child is invited to participate in the Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC). NLMC is a national math contest given by Noetic Learning.  The purpose of the contest is to inspire young student interest in math and convey the message ‘It is COOL to be good at math!’ to students.

Participation in this contest is completely optional.  The NLMC contest will take place on November 9 at 3:00 PM in the Camino Pablo Multi-Use Room. Students will be given 45 minutes to solve 20 math problems. Students should be done and ready to be picked up no later than 4:30 pm. The top 10% of students will be rewarded and the top 50% of students will be recognized on Noetic Learning’s web site.


Visit the web site (http://www.noetic-learning.com/mathcontest) for additional information about the Noetic Learning Math Contest and for sample contest problems.

We are excited that our school will be participating in the Noetic Learning Math Contest. We know that Camino Pablo's students will help us to show what Camino Pablo students know and can do!

The participation is voluntary, and is on a first-come, first-served basis (up to 30 students each from grades 2 through 5 may participate). We do need your permission to register your student and release your student’s name to Noetic Learning.  Attached is a permission slip. If your child would like to participate, please return it by October 30, 2017. If you have questions please contact David Harrison. Thank you David Harrison for taking the lead on this event.
