Dear Parents and Students,
We hope you can attend this Tuesday’s Buffalo P.R.I.D.E. breakout sessions at the High School from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. This informational evening will have several sessions to choose from and be a great way to earn P.I. time.
Friday, March 6, is Mixed-Up Friday in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s contributions and accomplishments and Read Across America Day. Students are allowed to dress mixed-up, backwards, and wacky. Athletic shoes are still required all day.
Consent forms and payment for our field trip to MOSI is due by March 19. I know our students are really looking forward to this educational time.
Conferences are continuing. Thank you, parents, for your devotion to your child’s education. I appreciate your time!
In Language Arts, we are working on “Mock FSA testing” this week. The actual FSA test will be administered the week of March 23 in our classrooms. The “Mock test” will help students understand the length allowed for the test. Due to this change in schedule, we will not have our usual cold read on Friday. We will practice our normal spelling, grammar, and vocabulary skills in class, with a spelling test on Friday.
Your child should be reading a variety of books and be ready to test on nonfiction by Friday of each week. This is an important routine to keep building content vocabulary not found in chapter books. The last day to AR test for the Third Nine Weeks’ goals is March 12.
This week we will be continuing Chapter 12: Plane Shapes. We are also working on mixed multiplication facts. Please continue to review homework at home and praise your child for all their efforts.
In Social Studies, we are learning about cultures and their influences to North America.
Read 20 minutes each night from an AR book. Be ready to test on a nonfiction book by Friday.
Complete Math mixed multiplication worksheet by Friday.
Complete Weekly Homework by Friday.
Monday: Math 12.2
Tuesday: Math 12.3
Wednesday: Math 12.4, Study Vocabulary
