Dear Parents and Students, 

Tropicana Speeches: Congratulations to out Tropicana Speech winners:

1st place - Hannah

We are in need of tissues.  If you would like to donate it would be greatly appreciated (we have a lot of runny noses this allergy season).  P.I. time will be awarded.  Thank you in advance.

Reading Logs - These are due at the end of every week.  I assign four days of library book reading homework each week.  Your child should be reading nightly, though.  They need to make sure they are logging their three entries each week and getting their logs signed. 

Spelling:  The students will be given a pre-test on Mondays.  Any student that earns a 100% or more will be responsible for only one homework assignment that week and they will not have to take the test again on Friday.  The students can go to and practice their spelling each week.   All they have to do is click on Login at the top right of screen and then enter the username and password in the section labeled Administrator/Teacher/Parent, press login, and then find their list to practice. Here is the username and password:

         In an effort to be better stewards of our resources parents will no longer be receiving AR TOPS reports.  To view your child's progress towards their goals you can visit the website listed below.  It is easy to get signed and ready to use this great service.  You will receive emails to your personal address when your child has tested.  It is a valuable tool to use in keeping in touch with your child's progress.

     Parents, please make sure that your child is taking advantage of the ThinkCentral website.  This is a valuable tool to use for practice in both reading, math, and science.  Your child will be given a username and password for this website.  The information will be located in their binders.  Also, the McGraw-Hill website for Social Studies and Reading.

     Please make sure to check binders nightly for important information, weekly assignments, and tests.  Please make sure that your child is reading every night.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me, jot a note in the planner, or email me at anytime. 

Thank you,

Mrs. Barclay
