Happy Valentine's Day/President's Weekend!! Enjoy this long 4 day weekend with your families!! Thank you for all the sweet Valentine's day cards and treats! Scholars, I'll see you on Tuesday! NO library Tuesday so meet us at the classroom door :)

Solar System Unit

It's finally time to BLAST OFF to outer space, Planet Dixon! Get ready to have some fun learning about planets, the sun, the moon, stars, and more! We will dive in right away on Tuesday :)

Homework This Week

As we are moving into our Solar System Inquiry unit, we need to wrap up our Genius Hour projects and be ready for presentations. Therefore, this week's homework (besides reading/spelling) is to finish your presentation and be ready to present on Friday. I'm excited to see the genius in you and learn about what you are passionate about! Please click here for homework menu.

We will resume normal h.w. procedures the following week. Parents, please note that the we had some serious discussions about being responsible for completing homework and some students having a difficult time with the "choice" menu. Students are aware that if we continue to have students not completing homework we will have to have nightly homework and more check ins :( We definitely all agreed we liked the choice menu and all students completely know their responsibility and therefore their consequence if not completed. Thank you for your support with this as we prepare them for 4th grade.
