Class Facebook Page

I encourage you to like our class Facebook page! [link below] I have two really faithful participants, what about the rest of you? Parent's are encouraged to log on and post an answer to the question for the day. Each student whose parent posts an answer will receive a point in our class dojo system daily. Students will only receive points for answers posted on the same day as the post. Stay informed! Be connected!

Spelling List

Good News: No spelling test until AFTER ISTEP! We will be doing many review activities in preparation for ISTEP!

ISTEP testing

The dates for ISTEP are March 1-4. Please make sure your child is at school everyday during ISTEP, that he/she eats a healthy breakfast and gets at least 9 hours of sleep each night.


We will begin our study of Science Chapter 6. We will be doing a packet page daily with a quiz on the following Tuesday. Students will keep the packet in their homework folder throughout the week so they can review it daily to prepare for the quiz. It will be essential that students study for the quiz. The quiz is not easy!


Monday: Reading passage, Math

Tuesday: Writing prompt, Math

Wednesday: Reading passage, Math

Thursday: Writing prompt

Friday: NO Homework

AR Goals

Students should be at 60% of their AR goal by Friday, February 19th
