No Friday Folders This Week
We need more Genesee Country Museum chaperones! Please consider joining us!
We'll be visiting Aqueduct Park in Palmyra on June 1st. Our class will be going with Mrs. Gleason's class. We'll leave school around 9:15 and arrive at the park around 9:45. This is a rain or shine event. We'll start our day at the park and watch how the lock operates. Then we'll all walk the trail that goes along part of the original Erie Canal that takes us into the village of Palmyra. At that point, we'll visit the museums. The trip will end with lunch. The buses will pick us up at the museums around 1:15. This trip is free through a grant.
Monday, June 18th will be our grade level trip to Onanda. The same procedures apply to this trip. Kids have to ride the bus to the park, but can be dismissed from the park with parents if appropriate paperwork is complete prior to the field trip to date. I'll let you know about the cost as we get closer to the trip date.
I'll keep this information in the newsletter for the next few weeks. Please check out the google form below. You only need to fill it out if you would like to chaperone.
Swimming & Music Ensembles
Instruments on Tuesday for lessons and Wednesday for band/orchestra.
Mrs. Close’s Class ~ We are almost halfway through Module 7. In this module, students will sharpen their skills in measurement as they relate multiplication to the conversion of measurement units. Today, the student had to answer a few questions regarding odd and even numbers? When would it be ideal to have even numbers of people or things? When would it be better to have odd numbers? I am looking forward to reading their responses!
Mr. Hart's Class ~ Woo Hoo, we are finished with the state math test! I believe that all of the kids were prepared for the task and am sure that they all did a terrific job. Prior to the state math test we finished Module 5. The graded tests came home this past Tuesday. Today we started Module 6. This module teaches the kids about decimal fractions. We will explore tenths and hundredths as well as compare, and add the decimals.
