A Note from the Teacher...

NDSA Testing

Students will be testing next week April 24-27 for ELA and May 2-3 for Math.

Please make sure your students are well rested and have a good breakfast!

4th Grade Bismarck Field Trip

Our big field trip to Bismarck is on May 19, 2017. We will leave at 5:45 AM and get back around 5:30 PM.

4th grade will also get to go on a field trip to Bonanzaville, in West Fargo, on May 11 at 9 AM so those that don't get a chance to chaperone Bismarck will get another chance to chaperone!

What's Happening In...

ELA/SS: 5th grade is studying causes of the American Revolution while 4th is studying Lewis and Clark's Expedition

Writing: Both grades are working on test preparation by practicing opinion, synthesis, and narrative writing.

Math: 5th is learning multiplying mixed numbers and 4th is focused on fraction computation.

Science: 4th grade is studying potential and kinetic energy and 5th is studying mixtures and solutions.
