Primary A Weekly Note

Dear Primary A Families,

We want to thank you for coming to our Winter Concert and Learning Celebration earlier this week.  The students were so excited to share their science projects, their small moments writing, and all the other work they have been doing in school.  We hope you are as proud of your children as we are!  They worked hard this semester, and they truly enjoyed showing you the fruits of their labor. 

Just in case your child wants some math practice over the Winter Break, all students in PrA have IXL accounts. IXL is a comprehensive learning program offering unlimited math practice problems in thousands of skills. To access IXL at home, you go to TPS website, then to Student Central, and hit 1st and 2nd grade. Scroll down to find IXL and click on it. The login information is:

username = first name + first initial of last name + @philadelphia [e.g. [email protected]]

passwords = pr (all of them)

or go directly to and enter the same information as above to log in.

Ask me...

  • how I felt about sharing my work during the Learning Celebration;
  • how I felt about singing in the Winter Concert;
  • my favorite part of Frog & Toad at the Arden;
  • about The Franklin Institute visit.

We hope you have a restful, fun, rejuvenating break!  We look forward to seeing you again on January 3.

Thanks for a wonderful first semester together!

Bernadette and Cinda
