Submitted by doug.lai on Thu, 05/24/2012 - 16:57

After months of drilling times table facts, Mr. Lai’s class finally passed off all their multiplication facts from one through ten. The students take a 50 question timed test and have to do it under three minutes,  They have been practicing three days a week since October.  Students were also asked to do math fast facts each night for homework.  Each year Mr. Lai makes the same agreement with his class.  If they all pass their math facts then he shaves his head.  He has had to do it five times.

April 25th was Secretary Appreciation. The PTA decorated the office and provided Mrs. Debbie Dockstader and Mrs. Loura Martin capes and super hero masks because they truly are superheroes that take care of our school.  They do everything from taking care of students hurts to doing student attendance. The PTA tried to fill their shoes while they went to lunch and were utterly exhausted when the secretaries returned. Thanks for all you do!
