News You Can Use

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! I am looking forward to getting to know the kids and helping them to acquire the skills to 'do school', learn new information, build their social-emotional qualities and have some super fun!

Please note that I share your students with my teaching partner, Mrs. Harrington. Go to her page here. She teaches Literature, Language Arts and Social Studies, while I cover Math, Science and Physical Education. We label the 2 groups as GOLD and GREEN. GOLD are the students I begin with at the start of the day. GREEN begins with Mrs. Harrington. These 2 groups of students are our HOMEROOMS. Please note that we may give information that only applies to one group. 

PLEASE email me at cpugliese [at] if you have any questions.

I will make every attempt to update the homework blast daily.

Math and Science HW - none

I am finally back after 5 weeks of rahabbing from a total left hip replacement. I couldn't be more thrilled with the results and I feel like I have a new body! The kids made such sweet welcome back notes and I missed each and every one of them while I was out  :)

Our guest teacher, Mrs. Rottler, took wonderful care of the students and I am super-stoked on their accomplishments while I was absent - from test grades to lab activities and behavior <3

We got re-aquainted today and talked about their holiday excursions and my surgery. Official lessons start tomorrow... we did spend a period watching YouTube videos and making posters introducing our new math concept: Order of Operations. Tomorrow I will also launch the 2nd half of our Weather Unit which covers: the Greenhouse Effect, Global Warming, Fossil Fuels and Human's Impact on the Earth. 

I passed back the following papers:
