On Monday we will be resuming the Psychomotor program, so please be sure to send your child with appropriate shoes and clothing.
Wednesday, our class gets time to visit the Book Fair. You may send them with money to purchase items, or just encourage them to browse if you plan to stop by during Open House.
This Thursday is Open House. Classrooms will be open from 6:00 to 7:30. Come by to see all of the things we have been learning and the hard work our class has put into our lessons. The school is holding a paper drive contest that night, bring a ream of printer paper to help us win! Please be aware that school lets out that day at 12:58.
This Friday, the parent surveys are due. If you have not turned it in yet, please do so soon. Since we do not have scores this year, the surveys from parents, students, and employees are what will measure our success as a school.
As I am sure your child has already told you, we have a last minute field trip coming up. You should be receiving information on this soon. We were invited by room 16 to join them on a field trip that they were given last minute. We plan to go on May 14th to City Hall to have a tour and time with our Assembly Person. We may also get a tour of Olivera Street. I will be needing 2 parent volunteers to chaperone the trip.
The day before our field trip, the Science Fair projects are due, May 13th. Be sure that you have met all the criteria for your category. If you need another criteria/rubric sheet, you can find it on the Vintage website.
You should have looked at the paperwork for the Spell-A-Thon. The pledges you get will hep to update our Computer Lab so that we can be better prepared for the Smarter Balance test next year. Our spelling words next week will be the words for the test.
In academics, this past week we officially finished taking the Smarter Balance test! This week, we will continue to focus on writing. We will also be revisiting the topic on measurement and retesting to be sure the class is up to par. We only have one science lesson left before we prepare to test on this unit. We are down to the last wire, so be sure to stay on top of homework and class work, we are still adding scores towards our final grades.
