We will recognize the 50 point club students in grades K-2 and the 100 point club students in grades 3-5 each quarter! We are proud of them and hope to make shirts for even more students in the next quarter! The principal award went to Emmery and Cyrus in second grade and Trent and Lylah in third grade! Way to go! Lastly, we were honored to recognize Mrs. Gamez, our fifth-grade math teacher, as KLBK's Teacher of the Week! She is dedicated to student success and portrays passion in her classroom for student learning! Thank you, Mrs. Gamez for all that you do for our students!


We are beyond thankful for the dedication of our UIL coaches and your children for representing us at the district UIL meet in November. I included how we placed and we couldn't be more proud! The students tried out for the teams, worked hard outside of school to study, and performed amazingly at the meet!


The teachers and staff tell your children how proud of them we are every day! We are dedicated to student success and enjoy celebrating all their accomplishments!

4TH GRADE

It's been an exciting week! It was amazing to see so many students receive awards for the 2nd Quarter.


In 4th grade Math, we are working on Geometry. We have covered area and perimeter of four-sided figures and are working on learning about lines, rays, angles, points, and types of lines. The students seem to enjoy this unit so far. 🙂


In 4th grade Science, we are discussing weathering and erosion. We performed a lab using Skittles and Jolly Ranchers to simulate different types of rock that is weathered by water. The students had a good time making observations and communicating what they learned.


5th grade Science is deep into learning about weather. They have had a good time pulling up real time weather information and some of them made excellent forecasts of their own! We are learning about different types of fronts, where wind comes from, why different weather conditions may be present, types of climates, and many other things. They seem to be enjoying what they are learning. Please discuss with them the weather each day.


Thank you for sharing your children,

Mrs. Brown 🙂



In ELAR we are beginning a research project and diving deeper into informational texts. In Social Studies we are learning more about the important people who helped create Texas. I am so proud of everyone's hard work so far this semester.


Reminders...

  1. Spelling tests every Thursday!
  2. Read at least 20 minutes every night. We have big AR goals to meet this 9 weeks.
  3. Please message us if your child will be out!

Thank you for all you do 🙂 It is a joy to spend my days with your child.

5TH GRADE

Wow! I can't believe another week has gone by. This week we have pivoted to learning about informational texts. We have been reading interesting books about Giant Squids, salt, and birds. It's been a great start to our unit over Informational texts.

In Social Studies, we've been learning more about American Indians and American Immigrants and westward expansion. The students are working diligently every day.


A few reminders:


  • Please send your child with a water bottle every day.
  • Please make sure your child is reading every night for no less than 20 minutes. We have students who aren't meeting their AR goals because they aren't reading enough. I want all students to be able to be rewarded for their hard work, not just a small group.
  • Please try to have your student here every day if they are healthy. We are ramping up to the STAAR test and every minute of instruction matters.
  • If your child does get sick and will be absent, please let me or Ms. Gamez know through Dojo so we can plan for makeup work if needed.
  • Spelling tests will start next Thursday. A new spelling test is going home today! Please have your child go over this every night.



Thank you!

Mrs. Rasco


Math

-We need to keep on practicing multiplication math facts. I have one student that mentioned she has changed it up and now she is dividing with multiplication math facts as a game on her phone. (I love that!) Not only is she working the math facts but getting used to dividing.

-We will start with perimeter, and area next week. This will be fun!

-Thank you for all your support.
