What's New?

We had a fun, short week!

Our Civil War simulation is over and the winner of the "points" is the South. Congratulations to both sides for working as a team and showing good sportsmanship. This simulation was enjoyed by all!

A special thanks to Mrs. Jump and Mrs. MacDonald for teaching our students about Marc Chagall. It was a great Art Adventure and a nice lesson to end our year with this program.

Our Learning:

Math

This week in math, the students continued to find volume or capacity, using one, two, or three steps to solve word problems. We will review on Monday and take our Chapter 14-15 test on Tuesday.

Reading

This week, we learned about Brown vs. Board of Education. The students read a non-fiction article and compared it to the Plessy vs. Ferguson case. We also continued with our literature discussion groups.

Science

This week in Science, the students learned about atoms. They observed ten different types of atoms and looked for patterns to help them understand the rules of atom structure.

Writing

We continued to discuss how to take the facts we've been collecting for our non-fiction picture books and make them into interesting paragraphs. This week we focused on using comparisons in our writing to help grab the reader's attention.

Dress Code

Just a reminder, that as the weather gets warmer, the students are pulling out their summer clothes. We want to make sure that all students are comfortable at school. Please help your students make sure their summer clothes still fit appropriately from last year and send them to school in clothes that are appropriate as well as comfortable. Here is a copy of the district's dress code for your reference from the student handbook.


Students must wear modest, clean clothing appropriate for school or a special activity. Depending on the season of the year, shorts and short-sleeved shirts are permitted. The length of shorts and skirts should be at least mid-thigh. Pants are to be worn at the waistline and bare midriffs are prohibited. Hats, head coverings and sunglasses may not be worn in the school building. There may be authorized exceptions for particular events. Clothing with inappropriate or disrespectful words or pictures may not be worn to school. Any attire that distracts from the orderly school environment is not permitted.
