Weekly Happenings

If your student qualified for the remediation summer school class you received a new summer school form this week. If your student sees Mrs. Martin or Mrs. Rice for reading intervention we suggest they go to summer school. Summer school will be 4 days a week (Mon.-Thurs.) and transportation will be provided. Please return summer school forms by April 30th. If you have questions about summer school feel free to shoot us an email.


McTeacher Night is on the 28th at the Raymore McDonald's. We hope to see you there!

This week we learned to measure objects with connecting cubes. We also compared different lengths to each other.

We learned about common nouns and proper nouns this week.



Social Studies: I can explain the significance of several national symbols.

We researched the Bald Eagle, American Flag, White House and Statue of Liberty this week.
