Don't Forget...Brown County State Park Field Trip

Friday, May 20th, 9am-2:15pm

1810 State Road 46 East

Nashville, IN

On Friday, May 20th we will be traveling to Brown County State Park. The cost of the trip is $8.00 (this includes bus expenses). We are only ordering two buses to keep the cost down, so parent chaperones will need to meet us at the park (more details will come home about the meeting location). Each car going into the park is charged a $5.00 entrance fee.

Please return the permission and money together by May 13th.

This is EPIC!

Students started using EPIC! this week as a way to access books. At school and since I am a teacher, I can invite all of my students to free access here at school. You can also access EPIC! at home for as little as $5 per month. This also includes a 60 day free trial. Click the button below for more details.

Library Books

All library books are due next Friday, May 13th. Our AR goals will not end until May 25th so students will still have time to meet their goals. Since the library books have to be returned before then here are some options:

  1. visit the public library
  2. use MyOn
  3. sign up for EPIC!
  4. students can login to Itslearning and access Tumblebooks
  5. if you have a kindle or any other device you can check out books from the public library without leaving your house. Click here for more details.

AR Goals

Please help your child work towards meeting his/her AR goal. We graphed the progress today and reports are in your child's folder. Our goal is for every student in the class to reach his/her goal by the last day of school (May 25th).

Reading Logs

Don't forget reading logs are due every Monday.

Spelling Homework

Spelling homework will look a little different on Monday. Instead of a packet, the students will have the choice to complete 4 different activities. After each activity is completed a parent needs to initial the box. Staple any written work to this sheet and return it to school on Friday. All written work is expected to be turned in neat and complete!
