The Latest Scoop
News from Room 215 for the week of March 23
PTO Silent Auction
Thank you to everyone who attended or purchased something from the silent auction! We raised almost $19,000! I was so close to getting those Taylor Swift tickets, but I missed it by seconds. And here I thought I was a professional Ebayer.
Scholastic Book Orders
Just a reminder that if you're interested in purchasing books through Scholastic, feel free to order online or you can submit your order to me. There are more options of books online if interested. :) All orders are due on Wednesday.
This week we visited the 4th grade wax museum along with going to the school play on Wednesday! Just a reminder that we do not have school on Friday. It's hard to believe we only about 40 days left of school. We do not have a spelling list this week, but will when we return.
When We Return
When we get back, I will actually not be here on Monday as our flight comes in on that day. Soon after our return from a much needed break, we will take our Spring NWEA. We will be taking the math, reading, and language portions. We have worked so hard this year and I can't wait to see the growth that has been made! Last, but not least, the computerized portion of ISTEP will then begin near April 23. I do not have a schedule yet, but when I do I will be sure to let you know.
