The official end of the trimester was Friday, March 2nd (which happens to be Dr. Seuss’s Birthday), but we’re still wrapping up 2nd Trimester gobblygook. It’s not really gobblygook…it’s important and often impressive material the kids are creating. In 5th grade, students should already have their National Park reports posted on their web pages, so be sure to check them out. This week they’ll be finishing their Power Point presentations and next week their Roald Dahl Book Clubs. Be sure also to listen to the podcasts of the students’ Black History plays, which can be found by clicking here. Fifth grade students also have a new set of vocabulary words. The list can be found here, and the test will be delivered late next week.
Students in 4th grade are completing their Explorer Power Point presentations in Ms. McNeil’s class, and in 4th grade math they’re finishing up their lengthy study of measurement and geometry with a quiz on Friday. Here’s the homework for this week: Monday, March 5th; Tuesday, March 6th; Wednesday, March 7th; Thursday, March 8th.
Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for March 19th-21st. We’ll be sending home information this week, but to get a head start and reserve the premium spots, click on the Conferences tab above, select a couple of times that will work for you, and e-mail me at email@example.com or leave a reply on the Conference page itself. I’ll update the conference schedule as requests are solidified. I look forward to meeting with each of you!
