"How many days until Summer?"

The Daily Question

Notes from Ms. Goodrum

The days seem long but they are flying by. Each day, we are still packing in lots of educational content that our students need in order to be successful beyond the doors of Barber MS. Every day, students ask how many days until Summer? We don't have too many and so it is very important that each child is at school every day, ready to learn.

It is crucial that we don't look at Summer vacation as a break for our brain. Students need to practice math facts and be reading books each night. By doing this, our children will better retain information learned in the school year and will be better prepared for the next grade.

Ms. Goodrum's classes will be attending the library as a class for the last time, tomorrow, Tuesday, May 5th. All books are to be turned in by the end of next week. PLEASE make sure your son/daughter brings library books to school tomorrow. ALL LIBRARY BOOKS will be DUE for the year May 18th. Any records that are not cleared will be sent to McAdams Junior High until the books are returned or paid for if they are lost. This means, students will not be able to attend any school functions such as dances or check out books at McAdams.

We are currently reading a class novel together call, "Picture of Hollis Woods." To help engage your son/daughter, ask them questions about the book. Here is an overview: Until next time...

Hollis Woods has been in so many foster homes she can hardly remember them all. When Hollis is sent to Josie, she’ll do everything in her power to make sure they stay together.

A troublesome twelve-year-old orphan, staying with an elderly artist who needs her, remembers the only other time she was happy in a foster home, with a family that truly seemed to care about her.

Until next time...

Our next book fair will be held on campus May 11-15 with the exception of the 12th when we have STAAR retesting. The book fair will have lots of amazing books for sale during school hours.
