Parents,

Thank you again for supporting our school through the Richland Fun Run!

This weekend we are issuing a special challenge. Visit funrun.com to see the bonus prize your child can earn simply by getting a total of $2 per lap in new pledges (or $60 in flat donations) this weekend only.

And if you’re looking for an easy way to ask for a pledge, create your very own Student Star Video by uploading a photo of your student to funrun.com. It’s a fun movie trailer starring your child! You can share it on email or social media to ask for a pledge.

Thank you again for helping our class.

Parents,

Our class is having a blast preparing for the Richland Fun Run coming up soon! Plus, we started learning how to “make a difference” through the Fun Run’s character theme, Backyard Box Office. We’re learning from REAL kids who are dedicated to making people’s lives better. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kid difference-makers are inspiring our students to practice five “Character Acts” so they can also make an impact in our community.

Remember, as you connect to sponsors for the Fun Run, make sure all pledges are entered on funrun.com. The more pledges we get, the more incentives our class earns on our Pledge-O-Meter. Plus, for every $30 per lap our class pledges, three meals will be given to a local person in need through our giveback initiative, A Million Students Strong. Our students are excited to rise to the challenge and give back to our community!

Thank you for your generosity and supporting our school. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Have a great day!

PS - Make sure to register your child on funrun.com. He or she will receive a FREE GIFT just for being signed up. Use our school registration code: 384927

Hello Mrs. Jackson,

During our Parent/Teacher conference we talked about the frustration of not being able to help Larsen with her math homework because there is no book or examples to assist us or her.  I have found excellent videos when searching YouTube.com.  If the Homework indicates Lesson 18 2.3, then I enter the following search criteria:  Eureka Math 2nd grade Lesson 18 Module 3.  The videos give me step by step instructions for problem solving.  This has been extremely helpful to understand the way the problems are to be solved based on the Eureka method.  I hope this information can help other parents that are feeling confused and frustrated as well.

Thank you,
LaTarsha Thompson
