March School is off to a good start using First in Math Online Program in grades 2, 3, and 4. First In Math® activities employ Deep Practice techniques to rapidly increase computation, problem solving, critical thinking and essential math basics. Skills that may take months of regular practice can be mastered in a much shorter time using Deep Practice techniques and the immediate feedback online learning can provide. Children using FIM have shown dramatic increases in math scores—across the board— from the top students to the most math-challenged learners. Math24 Online Program has a twist this month. Our EASD has received from the First in Math Team additional accounts for Kindergarten and Team of the Month First grade students. As they learn to Mrs. Laslo navigate the program. Keep your eyes out BE for students in K and 1 +12,823 moving into the ranks. Best of luck and fun to all of our new players.

3rd Grade Biographies
The third grade classes have been working very hard the past few weeks on their biography book reports. In honor of Black History Month, Womenʼs History Month, and Presidentʼs Day, students were encouraged to select a person that represented one of these celebrations. After students selected their person and read the biography, they compiled information from their book to write a short report. After doing the writing piece the students then created a person with a tri-fold center to display the information they found interesting about their person. The third grade classes enjoyed the project and learned a lot about many powerful and important people all around the world. Stop by the third grade hallway to see some of these famous people US Presidents and read their stories!
We are continuing to collect "Tabs for the Ronald McDonald House". With these tabs, we can help the Ronald McDonald House pay the cost for families to stay close by to their children while they are ill and need to stay in the hospital. Please keep bringing in any "pop tab" that is on soda cans, soup cans, dog food cans. Leopard Council's K-Kids are now starting our next project, "Paper for Meals on Wheels". In collection boxes around the school, we are collecting paper that has been used on one side, so that the other side may be used for the drivers to print the directions to where they need to deliver the meals. We are also going to be starting a "Shave for the Brave" group that will be shaving their heads on May 5th. You can either come and shave your head or support those who are shaving. There will be disco balls, dancing, face painting and more! Come out and support!

Leopard Mascot Meets the Easton Rotarians
On February 28, 2013, Mrs. Kinney was invited to the Easton Rotary Meeting to share with the members how the $500.00 Teacher of the Year monetary gift
was spend for F.A. March School. Mrs. Kinney couldnʼt think of a better way to explain how the generous monies were spent than to bring the gift with her. The F.A. Little Leopard Mascot greeted the Rotarians with huge waves and many kicks in her step to express the gratitude to the Club and our wonderful March PTA for matching the award money so this very special costume could be purchased for our school community. They members appreciated hearing how our mascot brings many wide smiles, laughter and giggles every time she attends a school event. Mrs. Kinney had many pictures to pass around showing the mascot and the students participating in school activities. The Rotary Club members enjoyed meeting our school mascot knowing how special this gift is for our students.
Each month different staff members will be interviewed by 3rd and 4th grade students.

It’s Hip to Clip: Boxtops
Our Little Leopards are doing a FAME-tastic job of clipping Box Tops for the 2012-2013 school year. We set a goal of raising $1,500.00. The money earned through the collection of Box Tops will help to fund the FAME prizes and assemblies for our students. We are so excited to share that our school just hit $1,277.00 in box tops. We are only $223.00 away from our goal! What a fabulous job! Take a LOOK at our Box Tops tracking chart in the hall and cheer our school on as we celebrate our progress. Don't forget to clip box tops and bring them into school… because it’s HIP to CLIP!
