Life Skill of the Month
This week's emphasis is Caring and Compassionate.
Some students came to school today without a simple "have a conversation with your parents about this" assignment completed. When asked why, they told me that they forgot...because they didn't look at the agenda to see the reminder. :-( It seems that this isn't an isolated incident. I'm not sure who is and is not using their agenda correctly, but this is a habit that they need to develop. It will be critical next year and the years to come. Please help your child with this at home if you are not sure that it is happening.
ELA & Social Studies
I have been impressed with how well your children have done up to this point, but it is really getting challenging and I can see the stress on some children's faces while they take the quiz. They want to do as good as they have in the past, but the memorization doesn't come as easily now that we have 75 words and/or stems. We have 5 more lessons left. Let's finish strong!
