News from this week

Thank you to all families that attended STEAM Night! It was so much fun and it was great to see so many happy faces from our class. I hope you enjoyed all of the fabulous presenters and I hope you were able to view some of the technology projects from our classroom.


Report cards are coming home today in your child’s Friday Folder. The report card is yours, but please be sure to send in the signed envelope on Monday. Krispy Kreme does a promotion that for every A on the report card, your child can get 1 glazed doughnut. My own kids love it!


As Milestones approach, I strongly encourage the students to start reviewing their Science/SS journals as part of their nightly reading. All study guides can be found on my e-Class page. There is also a year in review power point for both Science and SS on my e-Class page.


Classroom Supplies needed! As we approach the end of the year, we are quickly running out of a few supplies that help keep our classroom running. If you are able to send in any of the following items, I would greatly appreciate it!


Tissue

Paper Towels

Pencils

Hand Sanitizer


I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Coming up next week

Reading: We will work on non fiction text features (graphs, charts, etc.).


Writing: We will continue drafting a guided opinion piece.
