The Technology Campus is incredibly thankful for all of our faithful readers, and for that we would like to reward our families. Moving forward we will have a NEWSLETTER QUIZ located under the Principal's corner.

Parents and community members may donate to the TpT fund by sending in TpT gift cards. Gift cards can be purchased online: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Gift-Card. Parents can send in a gift card for their teacher or for the whole school account.
Fall Festival 2019 Fundraiser
This form is to sign up for clubs with space. This is for k-6, but will be grouped by grade levels. As a reminder, if you miss three or more days in a club you will be removed. If you are absent from school on a day that you have club, please remember to email the club teacher so that they are aware of your absence from school/club that day. Once you sign up, you will receive an email from email@example.com If you do not receive confirmation email to join the club, then it was full and you will be placed on the waitlist.

This week in Kindergarten we explored plants! We had a great time learning about how they grow, pollinate and germinate! We loved learning about seeds, bulbs and spores and how they grow plants differently.
We also talked about conversation and what we do to protect our environment. We can’t wait to use the different things that we learned on Earth Day!
This week in Ms. Molnar’s Class we talked about perseverance. We discussed continuing to try even when things get hard. We even finished up our chapter on measurement in math.
In reading Mrs. Beckman’s class read the narrative nonfiction story “Mia Hamm: Winners Never Quit” and learned about syllables. In math we finished our unit on 3D shapes and are getting ready for 2D shapes next week!
Have a great weekend!
This week in 3rd grade, students are starting to learn about different biomes for our upcoming biome day. Each class will decorate their room and we will have rotations to learn facts about each biome.
All of our students enjoyed Orca Day. Classes did rotations to help learn more about our school’s core values.
Don’t forget the Fun Spot permission slip is due Friday, May 3!
Hope to see you all at Astronomy Night!
