Holiday party planning

Mrs.Lister and I would love to meet with the room moms about the plans for the holiday party. We have already begun to plan the festivities for the day, but would like some parental input. As soon as we can meet, we can send information to the other parents to let them know how they can help!

Holiday party planning meeting

Monday, Dec. 7th, 2pm

801 Bear Creek Parkway

Keller, TX

Calling all room moms and class co-reps!!! If you are available on Monday afternoon, we would love to meet with you so we can have a united plan for the festivities on December 18th.


The students have begun their big fraction project for the semester. They are working in groups to create a "catering company" that will serve food at our holiday party. They will be presenting their suggested menus next week in order to be approved. Each group will then be assigned a specific dish that they will need to bring on the day of the party. More information will be coming home next week. We are also working hard adding and subtracting fractions this week. This has been a tough and busy week!! Next week I will be offering after school tutoring on Tuesday and Thursday until 3:30 for students that are in need of extra help. If your student would like to attend, make sure they let me know in advance that they are coming so I know to expect them. :)


This week we are reviewing sound, thermal energy and light. We have also enjoyed watching all the AWESOME presentations from the electricity projects. What a talented group of kids!


Please continue to encourage your student to read and sign their reading logs each week. The students are working on a project that combines ELA and Social Studies and they will be presenting on Tuesday. We will also continue studying Greek roots and we will be beginning a new unit on text structure at the end of the week.

Social Studies

After they complete the project, they will be tested over the 13 colonies. At the end of the week we will begin discussing the reasons for the Revolutionary War.
