The latest news about Team Mitchell!

Dear Parents,

Field trip forms need to be returned as soon as possible with the $4.00 fee. I will be sending home a list of parents who will be going with us on this field trip on Tuesday.

Student Council will be holding elections this week. Our class representative will be chosen on Friday. Students will have the opportunity to present a speech to their class. We will then vote on our class representative. More information will be sent home with the students on Tuesday.


Please see below for a more detailed explanation of our week! As always, contact me for any questions or concerns!

Vocabulary Skill: Multiple Meaning Words: are words that have more than one meaning. A place is a location sch as a school. Place also means "to put," as in, "Please place the paper on your desk."


Comprehension Skill: Literary Elements: plot, setting, characters: The plot is what happened in the story. The setting is where the story takes place. The characters are the people in the story.
