    Teacher Comments:  Students have begun researching their Latin American/South American countries in class.  They are learning the skills of effective note-taking and using several resources.  We also attended an informative assembly about choices for the Middle & High School music programs.  In addition, we had a fun visit from the Harlem Wizards.  The class was very excited!  A notice about the Wizards game at the High School on February 1st was sent home earlier this week.  Have a terrific weekend!! :)
