Mrs. Edwards' Class

May 2-6, 2016

NWEA

We all finished the math portion of our test this morning! I was so proud of everyone!


Our reading test will be on Monday morning (from 9-10am). Please make sure your child gets a good night's rest (I know it's hard on the weekends), and eats a good breakfast on Monday morning.


We have learned a lot this year and this is one opportunity for the children to show their growth. Results will be sent home later in May after the district has finished testing. Thank you for supporting your child's education and all of their hard work this year.

We're Going on a Study Trip!

Our class will be traveling to Ritchey Woods for our final study trip on Thursday May 5.

We will be talking about the differences in the woods from Fall to Spring.

Every child will need to wear their TCE t-shirt and bring a completely disposable lunch and drink (no soda). Your child will also need to bring their snack to school this day. Please pack these seperately so that your child does not have their snack with them on the field trip.

**All chaperones must ride the bus and have an updated background check on file with the office.

Save your Pop Tabs!

Mrs. Bousman's 3rd grade class is collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald house. Thank you to all who have already sent in tabs. Please continue to send your tabs!

Spelling

We have two more spelling tests this year. We will have our next one on May 6th. The final test will be on May 20th. I send the next set of words home on Monday. We do not have official homework for the remainder of the year. However, you may have noticed (from the last grade), you may have to have your child practice their words a little bit at home (although they practice them everyday at school). Think outside the box though and have them write them outside with sidewalk chalk, "paint" outside with a paintbrush and water, use a magnadoodle in the car (driving to and from all those sports practices), or even bouncing a ball and having them say a letter for each bounce.

IPad rentals for next year

Many of you have asked how you go about getting signed up for the IPad rentals next year. The district will be sending out a letter in the next few weeks asking for this information. Thank you!

Yearbooks

Just a reminder that the front office is now taking late yearbook orders. The price is $20, payable to TCE PTO. Your name will be placed on a waiting list once payment is received. Yearbooks will be distributed in late May.

Lemonade Week

4th grade will be selling lemonade for $.50 a cup the week of May 9th. A permission slip will be coming home on Monday. Your child will have the opportunity to purchase a cup of lemonade each day if they bring in their money and signed permission slip. This is totally optional and the money raised will go to charities of the 4th grade's choice. Again be on the look out on Monday for your child's permission slip if you are interested.
