Happy New Year! We are so excited to be back at school. The spring semester is one of renewal and growth. December was filled with celebrations for world peace and our love for one another. We are looking forward to all of the growth and prosperity that their hard work will continue to support.
I am looking forward to this month’s study of fractions, ratio and proportion! The verb is the most important part of speech this month, and we will continue our development of writing skills.
In addition to botany and zoology, physics is our focus in our advanced sciences. Our geographical focus is Asia this month, and we will continue our historical study of Florida, the United States and the world!
