Wow! I can't believe we are in May! This week students will showcase their knowledge through their End of Course Exams in Spanish, Music, Art, Physical Education, Science, and Social Studies. They will take one exam per day this week.
We will also celebrate those students who mastered their multiplication facts this Friday with an ice cream party! We have many students working hard to still master those facts.
Out end of the year awards ceremony and celebration is tentatively scheduled for Friday, May 22nd, at 9:00a.m. I will let you know as soon as I receive final approval.
Don't forget this Friday is the last day to AR test!
Parent surveys are currently available online.
Usernames and Passwords for Connected and ThinkCentral have been placed on labels and can be found in the front of your child's agenda! You now can access to our Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies books and online materials. I will attach directions below for each as a PDF. If you are having any difficulty accessing these materials online at home, please let me know.
Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked.
