End of the Year PARCC Testing

We have one more round of PARCC tests that will be administered next week and Monday, May 4th. Our classes will be testing in the computer lab and in the LMC. When we test in the LMC, we will be using the iPads. We're confident our strong UMAC learners can tackle these final three tests of the school year!

Skype Session!

Check out the pictures below from our AWESOME Skype experience with the author of our read aloud book, Agusta Scattergood. Her novel, Glory Be, is on the 2016 Bluestem list! We loved tweeting with Mrs. Scattergood while we were reading her novel. On Thursday, students were able to ask her questions personal questions about being an author and the characters in her story.

Environmental Scientists

This week we started Investigation 1 of our Environments science unit. Students gained experience planting 5 different kinds of seeds: radish seeds, clover seeds, barley seeds, corn seeds, and pea seeds. We are going to observe our terrariums and watch our seeds come to life. Take a look at our different science groups planting their seeds.
