What's coming up in the week ahead

Dear Parents,

Wow - last week was unexpected! We hope that everyone stayed dry during the recent flooding. Our kids have done a great job focusing and accomplishing the things that we are needing to get through during these last few weeks before the STAAR test. They are ROCKSTARS!

Your child should have brought home a permission slip for our field trip to Main Street Theater’s production of “Harriet the Spy.” The permission form and money are due back to school no later than Friday, May 6th.

Please make sure you are checking expectation cards (located in your child’s binder). They should be signed each Monday evening.

Homework will be sent home each Friday and it is due next Friday. Reading homework- passage (lesson 7) due Friday, May 6th. There will not be a reading log for the last 9 weeks. Math Homework - Page 811/812 and fact page due on Friday, May 6th. Math Log - no math log this week . Science homework- can be added on any given day, so please check Planners daily.

Parents please keep in mind that we will continue to spiral back to previously taught math concepts. When reviewing math at home continuously review all learned concepts.

Please remember that if you have a change of transportation, to send an e-mail to fe@katyisd.org. You may cc us so that we are informed too. Thank you!
