Mrs. Lee's Class Newsletter

Week of March 21st

What's Happening?

It's hard to believe that we are starting the 4th quarter of this year. We have many skills still to learn. I know spring fever is rampant. Please remind your child to stay focused as we head into the GMAS.


MARK YOUR CALENDAR!

Parsons' first annual Parsonspalooza will be on April 15th from 5:30-8:00 pm. More details in this week's Friday Folder.


GMAS Practice

Students have received information about our online practice available through GOFAR. They have a page with instructions and the codes needed to complete this practice. As an incentive, students who complete the online practice tests, receive at least an 80% on each of the tests and turn in the form with parent initials for each test by April 13th will receive a special treat on Friday, April 15th. Students can take a test more than one time. I have also explained to the students that they must finish a test once they start. If they exit out of an unfinished test, they will be locked out of that test and will not be able to complete it. Please remind them of this each time they practice online. If they do get locked out, please write LO in the score column and initial the parent column.

What are we learning?

Math: Geometry - Test on Monday

Reading: Literature Circles reading Because of Mr. Terupt.

Social Studies: The Reformers (Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton)

Pizza Hut Book It Program

Your child can earn FREE pizza!!

We are participating in Pizza Hut's Book It program. Here is how it works: Each student who reads a minimum of 700 minutes per month will receive a coupon for a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! It is that simple. I will keep up with the minutes using our regular reading logs that are due on Fridays. This program runs from October through March.

Reminder

Reading logs are due every Friday. Your chid is expected to read a minimum of 100 minutes at home each week.
