SAT10 Testing

We wrapped up SAT10 Testing today. The students reported that it was the best week of the year because I let them have "free time" after the test each day. I like to call it a brain break! Regardless, they worked hard each day and I am very proud of them. Thank you for helping them get lots of rest and for the healthy snacks. Test results will be distributed in a few weeks.

Poetry Cafe

Poetry Cafe was a great success! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the students running to get into line to recite their poems. They had a hand in everything related to the event and I couldn't be more appreciative. From the decorations to the set up, and especially in writing their poems, they made this teacher super proud. A special thank you goes out to the parents who recited poems along with them. My favorite was Madison's dad reading her poem about Kitty! Thank you all for a great night!


I emailed each student's PLP this week. If you didn't receive your child's, please let me know. If you could print a copy, sign it, and return it for their portfolio I would appreciate it. Thank you!


We have been using the Remind app and website in our classroom this year as a way for me to communicate updates and reminders that are specific to our classroom. Remind now has a chat feature that allows us to have a back and forth conversation between you and I! I'd like to know how you have liked using Remind. If you found it useful, or if you felt like CBA's Twitter page was plenty, please let me know. Any feedback is appreciated! Thank you!
