Happy Spring!

Spring Thinking

We are coming down the home stretch of our third marking period. Some things you may want to think about:

  • the temperature does flucuate--jackets/hoodies are a great idea
  • PSSA testing window begins Monday, April 13th, at which time we will shift to eat, sleep, test and play mode (deatils will come at a later date)
  • Please check your child's progress with our online resource: Study Island
  • We DO have school on Thursday, April 2nd
  • Spring/Easter Holiday is Friday, April 3rd through Monday, April 6th
  • End of the Third Marking period is Friday, April 10th (goal of 18 completed book reflections/project extensions)

This little piggy...

...has no name! We brainsotrmed ideas and will vote on a final name for this nameless piglet that Taran is holding. We will then "decorate" him/her to fill the role. Some of the ideas include: Abra"ham" Lincoln, Hammy Potter, Saint Hammy, "Ham"don Donovan, Hama Montana, Hammy Gaga, Hamster Bunny, and Mia Hamm. Any parent interested in outfitting this little piggy, please email me.
