End of Year

Holy Cow! Only 12 days left of school! Can you believe it????

Well, we have a ton of things going on.

First, on May 13th, the elementary will be putting on their spring program. Please have students here by 6:20pm as the show will begin at 6:30. Also, the 4th, 5th, and 6th graders are required to bring a dozen cookies for the show. Thanks parents! You are the best.

Next, the 4th, 5th, and 6th graders are still learning a ton in Science. The fourth graders will be finishing up their planetary chapter this week, and testing next week. We will be spending the remainder of the year researching different planets. Next, the 5th graders are also studying space. They are currently writing reports on an assigned constellation. These reports are due on Friday, May 14th, before they leave on their field trip. I will be handing out Study Guides to them on Thursday, which will be due on Monday. We will correct them and review for the test which is to be held on Tuesday of next week. We will finish the last chapter of the book in the following days and completing some group work. Finally, the sixth graders are studying motion and Newton's laws. We will be finishing the chapter by the end of next week or the beginning of the last week.

In reading, the last day to turn in the fourth AR book is on May 21. This is also the last day that I will let students collect points for the Banana Split party that will be held on May 26th. Right now, 4 of our 9 students have earned the party! Way to go Dan, Felicia, Cami, and John!

In social studies, we are working on PowerPoint presentations. Each students is creating a presentation over an assigned chapter. They have been working hard. This assignment is due on May 18th along with the workbook pages that go with that chapter.

As of right now, the float trip that I originally scheduled for May 26th, I am trying to reschedule. I will let you know as soon as I know anything. We will not need chaperones on this trip due to limited space.

Thank you parents for all you do for your children. You are awesome. We have had a wonderful year. Thank you for allowing me to be your childs' teacher!
