Biltmore Field Trip

After a long wait for paperwork, we finally have a date scheduled and permission forms sent home for the Biltmore trip! We will be visiting Biltmore on Thursday, February 18th. That is next Thursday! Because we are on such a tight schedule for this deadline, all Biltmore permission forms and money must be turned in by Monday February 15th. The cost of this trip is $25. This covers everything, including your child's lunch at the Biltmore House. If your child has any dietary restrictions that I don't already know about, please let me know so that I can ensure we have a meal option for them!


If you have any questions or concerns about this field trip, please contact me! We do have partial scholarships available. If you think you may need a scholarship, please contact me as soon as possible so I can make arrangements.


Thank you for your support, we are so excited about this awesome field trip opportunity!

Peek at the Week



Math: In math this week, we are continuing our unit on fractions. Be on the look out for a lot of resources over the quarter to support your child in this area.


Language Arts: We will continue accountability in daily five this week! Each day, the students will track their choices and what they accomplished during each round. Students will have the option to listen to reading, read to someone, read to self, work on words, and work on writing.

-We are focusing on how to determine the main idea of an informational text, as well as, how to effectively summarize a text.


In writing, we will be starting a new creative writing narrative unit.


Social Studies: We are going to be learning about the history of the three regions of North Carolina.
