Letters from Nepal

We just received new letters from our friend in Nepal, Riva Malla. Riva wrote back specifically to Taylor, Zoie, Emily, and Emilee (click on your name to read it), because they each wrote a letter to or sent a drawing to Riva last February. Understand, though, that Riva is really writing to the whole class. She also sent her latest report card, which shows she ranks fifth overall in her 7th grade class (which from what I can tell would be like 6th here). If anyone would like to write back to Riva on behalf of our class, please feel free. You can email it to me either in an email or as a PDF, but I need it by August 1st. Thanks! http://blogs.district6.org/mack.lewis/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/riva-aug-2018-report.jpg

Fifth Graders Are Such Babies!

And here’s proof. To avoid digital glitches, let it fully load before trying to play it (pause it when it starts to play and let it rest for a minute, or try downloading it to your own device first). Many apologies for the small screen size, but our web protocol doesn’t allow for a lager file. Be sure to listen to the final segment in a quiet place. Enjoy!

CPETV Episode 16

In our final episode created for Exhibition 2018, Sterling, Angie, and Nikkie give us brief tours of the school and the “old brick building.” They also teach us some basic science concepts using dry ice, a piece that won a Exhibition “Oscar” for best science segment.

CPETV Episode 15

In this episode, our 5th grade filmmakers, Mia, Eliza, Hannah, and Zoie, teach us about chemical reactions while making elephant’s toothpaste. They also give us a glimpse at the Jo County Tree Plant and CPE’s annual floor hockey tourney.

CPETV Episode 14

Emilee, Emily, Dakota, and Marissa give us a glimpse of Science & Math Night and CPE’s first ever locker contest. They also teach about density while making lava lamps in this, the 14th episode of CPETV–entirely written, directed, edited, and produced by 5th graders!

CPETV Episode 13

Camron, Carl, and the two Erics keep us in stitches with their tour of CPE’s mysterious atticand their hysterical attempts to launch a Coca Cola bottle into space (which won an Exhibition “Oscar” for most comedic moment). They also explain America’s recycling crisis. Written, directed, edited, and produced entirely by 5th graders–it’s another edition of CPETV!

Honors & Awards

Congrats to Room 15 Students-of-the-Month for May, Mia T. and Hannah V. These girls are awesome! They’re exceptionally well-behaved, intelligent, and kind. Great job, ladies!  Additional congrats to Daisy R., Taylor R., and Zoie M. for getting accepted into Southern Oregon University’s Academy program. They’ll spend a week at SOU this summer. Finally, kudos to all my former students who received recognition at Scenic Honors Night including Rayden G., Alyssa K., Amelia T., and Sydney L. (pictured at left).

2018 Oregon Coast Adventure

CPE 5th graders are scheduled to head to Charleston on the Oregon Coast on May 31st promptly at 7 a.m. After a slew of activities, they’ll return exhausted to you at around 6 p.m. on Friday, June 1st. The kids have been getting all the info and printed material in class, but just in case some of it hasn’t made it to you, here’s is everything you need at this time:

2018 Coast Trip Permissions Slip
2018 Coast Trip Permission Slip – Espanol
2018 Coast Trip Volunteer Form
2018 Coast Trip Packing List
2018 Coast Trip Itinerary
2018 Tidepool Research Project (Students are working on this in class, but if they fall behind they need to complete the project at home. Completion of the project and presentation in class are requirements to attend the coast trip.)

Thanks to some grants, Oregon’s taxpayers, and the CPE PTO, the coast to attend the trip is just five bucks! Five bucks!

Adults planning on attending should plan on joining us for an organizational chaperone meeting on Tuesday, May 22nd, at 6 p.m. in Mr. Hadley’s classroom. Students will also have a cargo packing demonstration on Friday, May 25th, leaving them the weekend to get organized.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
