Happy New Year, 2016!

Winter Traditions Projects

Our winter traditions around the world projects were a hit! Students learned about winter traditions in other countries, while simultaneously learning to craft a five-paragraph essay. Thanks to all of our families for the support at home, extra computer time to research and time spent in the kitchen, creating our international snackfest! What a fun way to send out 2015!

When We Return in January....

Report Cards

Report cards go home the beginning of February. That means grades finish up mid-January. We will have about TWO WEEKS of work when we return. Then I will no longer accept late work. Please use part of vacation to check in with your student. (As a parent I realize this is easier said than done....but it is important to use this more relaxed time to try to finish incomplete assignments.)

Questions to ask: What's in his/her take-home folder? Any homework that needs to be completed and turned in? What about AR? Have you looked online at RenPlace Home Connect recently? Has your student taken an AR tests? How many? How many Battle of the Books books has your student read?
