UMAC NEWS.............May 1st
Mrs. Barrett & Mrs. Wiley
Dear UMAC Families,
Next week concludes all of our testing in UMAC! As a rewards for our student’s hard work and determination the last two months, Mrs. Marks and Mrs. LaShelle are going to host a PARCC Picnic outside during lunch on Thursday, May 7th. The students and teachers will eat lunch with our fabulous administrators to celebrate their efforts (and that testing is finally over)! Please remember to pack a sack lunch if you did not sign up for a special lunch through the cafeteria on Thursday.
Our Moraine Hills Field Trip is next Friday. We will be leaving Woods Creek around 9am and returning around 2pm. Please encourage your son/daughter to dress appropriately for the weather (hopefully sunny) and a 3 mile hike! All students will need a sack lunch on Friday!
Thanks for your constant support!Michelle Barrett
What a Celebration of reading! Book Club Round One was completed today!
It was fun to share and discuss this historical event with our students, especially since they have so much schema from shared reading! We’ve decided to do another round of book clubs with our new WWII novels. Students will receive a new novel and group on Monday. Just like last rotation, any student who is unprepared for book club two times will lose the privilege of having the valuable book discussions with their team. Please help us in reminding your child the importance of taking ownership for their own learning!
