January Updates

Hello everyone. Can you believe the year is nearly half over? It is just amazing how fast this year has gone. With all this snow it is hard to imagine that summer will be here before we know it.

Sixth grade updates:
We just finished listening to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We will having a chocolate party on Thursday, January 14th: 1:30 - 3:10: Students will need to bring a chocolaty treat to share with the class on that day while we watch the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Social Studies: We have been studying Greece in Social Studies. We have learned about the Greek contributions to society today. We will be enjoying their food on January 19th. Students will bring a Greek dish for lunch on this day. A recipe will need to be submitted for our annual Greek Cookbook. Please watch for more information to come home within the next week.

Ice-Fishing: We will be going ice-fishing on January 28th to East Fork Reservoir by Lewistown. Please watch for further information in the coming weeks.

Computer Class: Sixth graders will begin taking computers 4 days a week beginning January 17th. Please encourage your child to practice their keyboarding skills, as there is a lot of report typing in computers this year. You may see an increase in homework due to the loss of class time.

5th and 6th Grade Science Fair:
We are currently finishing up our science fair projects. We will begin assembling the boards by the end of January. I am looking at holding the school science fair in early February. I will let you know as soon as I can. Report covers need to be at school no later than January 15th. Thank you for your support.
