BSSE

Our BSSE field trip is almost here! The students have been working very hard to prepare for this exciting day! Students will need to be sure they arrive to school on time, because we will load buses immediately following the announcements. Students need to dress comfortably, because they will be on their feet most of the day. The address for parents volunteering for the trip is 200 NW 14th St., Blue Springs, MO 64015. http://www.schoolofecon.org/contact.html

We're Learning...

In math we are learning about customary measurement and making conversions. We will begin learning about the metric system and making conversions on Tuesday. Students are working in small groups on books of their choosing, and are participating in book discussions. We are learning about theme in ELA, and are learning about informational texts by exploring newsela.com. We will begin ecosystems in science next week.

DARE

We have started our DARE program with Officer Thompson. Please wear your DARE shirt every Wednesday.

Canned Food Drive

Next week, we will participate in a school-wide canned and non-perishable food collection. We are asking each student to please bring in at least 3 items if possible. We will donate the food to needy people for the holidays.

Recyclables

Please send in any empty (and rinsed out) gallon milk jugs, quarts, pints, and 2 liter bottles. We will need the 2L bottles for another project (clear), so if you have any, please send them with your child. Thank you!
