I have another wonderful class of fifth graders! I have a couple of pleasant and capable students new to our school (Dakota and Hannah). I have kids I’ve known since kindergarten–if not before (Emma and Ella). I have siblings of former students (Tyson, Trevor, Sylas, and others). And I have a whole bunch of other GREAT kids. This week I get to acknowledge two students as Students-of-the-Month. Congrats to Daisy R. and Eric T. These two kids are off to a fantastic start. In addition to being well-behaved and good citizens, they’re eager to participate and they’re producing excellent work. They’ve set a high standard for what it means to be Student-of-the-Month. Great job, Eric and Daisy!
At home kids should be working on their play scripts and preparing for math tests on decimal place value and telling time.
