Social Studies

This week we are learning about the Northeast states. On Friday, 11 students will present their pizza box/cube/slide show/etc. to teach classmates about his/her state.

Homework this week is to study the "Southern" states and capitals. Test on Friday.


Students are writing "Elementary School Memoirs". I have asked them to have you help them with some memories from each grade K-5. Each student has a note-taking sheet to help with this. Also, please send in a picture of your child from each grade level K-5 to display with his/her memoir. Thank you!

State Testing

We took the Math Part 1 test today. The Math Part 2 test will be given on Thursday.

Next week will be our last Ohio test with Science Part 1 on Monday and Science Part 2 on Tuesday! :)
