Bueche's Bulletin: News You Can Use

December 5, 2014 or thereabouts

A Note from Ms. Bueche

It was great speaking with everyone at conferences. I can't believe we only have two weeks left until winter break. As you decorate your home, if you come across any old Christmas cards we will be doing a craft using the covers of the cards. Please keep this in mind after the holiday as well. I would love to stock up for next year. I'm also in search of any wide mouthed jars. We only need them temporarily. You can get them back after our science experiment/craft.

We took our winter reading MAP test. WOW did students do well! Many have to re-evaluate their spring goals.

This is a shortened newsletter as I have students working on our review week newscast instead. Partners each took a topic on the test to create a short skit or informational segment. We filmed it in the green room in the Husky Hub. We'll see how we can put it together. It is a learning experience- for everyone!

In order to use their knowledge of propaganda to their advantage, students made Animotos about a gift they want for the holiday. I will forward the movie intended for you. Enjoy!

We will be having our winter party on December 19th. We are doing a station rotation with the other classes in our bridge. I won't need helpers, but I'll send home a reminder note with those who signed up to send in a food item.

We will be stamping our Camp Half-Blood shirts on Dec. 18. Students can bring in their shirts anytime before then to be ready.
