Tisch's Tidbits

It was SO good to see the kids today! I have missed them. They fill my heart and it is such a joy to be with them. It's hard to believe we are looking at the final stretch of school. We have a full two months coming up!

Famous Hoosiers

Today was the big day! Your child was granted their Famous Hoosier. Each child was able to be one of their three top choices. Each child was given a purple packet with specific information, a time line and a calendar for the next two months. At this point, the goal is for sources to be found, signed off on by a parent signifying they have been viewed/deemed appropriate, and brought to school by next Thursday. In addition, start thinking about and looking for a costume to recreate the Famous Hoosier! Please let me know if you have any questions!

Please join us May 19 from 2:15-2:45 for the big event!


Tomorrow is our first of three final NWEA sessions. We will then do the second session on Friday in the morning. The final session will be next Tuesday morning. The kids and I had a talk today about how this is a celebration of all they have learned this year! This is not the time to let up, but to put it ALL out there! Finish strong! We will have a little breather and then we will finish up ISTEP in two weeks in the morning.

5th Grade Music

On Monday, the ZMS music teaches will be here to help your child find an instrument/give an introduction to 5th grade band, music, or orchestra.


Today, your child should have brought home a flyer for the annual golf tournament and the pet supply drive occurring at Union.

Science and Math

We are wrapping up our final science unit so be on the lookout for a review coming home next week. I'm thinking we will test towards the end of next week. My math class is working through a short unit focusing on perimeter and area and will be testing in two weeks.
