Wrapping Up Quarter 3 and Spring Break

Hard to believe, but it's the end of 3rd Quarter! All late/missing work should be handed in by Tuesday. We have our math and science tests along with our writing project that will be completed this week. Catch-Up and Relish will be on Thursday, and students are welcome to bring in a snack and drink (preferably juice or water) to enjoy during that time.

Friday, there is no school due to a teacher work day and no school next week for our spring break. I hope that you and your family will get some needed rest and relaxation (if you get to take a break with your kiddos)!

What Are We Working On This Week?

Character Education: Determination/Perseverance

Reader's Workshop: We're working on summarizing, synthesizing, and evaluating author's purpose

Spelling/Word Study: NO Spelling this week

Writer's Workshop: Finishing fictional writing (Diary of a ....). We will put our books together on Tuesday. Final product due Wednesday!

Math: Unit 7: Multiplying and Dividing Whole Numbers and Decimals TEST on Tuesday (division part) and Wednesday (multiplication part)

Science: Unit 8: Changes to Earth's Surface TEST on Wednesday (study guide was given last week)

Social Studies and Health: These subjects are taught by Mrs. Kornder. Please check your child's agenda daily to see if they have homework in these areas.
