The 5th grade STAR
Walk in Faith with Mercy and Grace
News to Know.....for the week of March 14, 2016
HAPPY PI DAY!!!
The kids enjoyed learning about PI and all things circular through reading, math, and art today. Thanks to all of you who sent in foodstuffs for the kids....(note to self: not every students needs to bring in enough for the whole class....it was way too much for us to consume!) For those of you who had leftovers, I hope your family will enjoy them.
Unfortunately, in all the busyness of the day, I completely forgot to pull out my camera... :(
Remember that Friday is early dismissal day for conferences. If you want to discuss your child's progress this past trimester, you can sign up for a conference via Sycamore.
We have a lot of volunteers to drive next week to the Discovery Science Center (THANK YOU!!!) Since 4th grade is going with us, I will see if they have enough drivers for their kids - we may mix classes if necessary. If there is anyone who volunteered who would rather not drive if it weren't necessary, let me know. But again, I appreciate all of you who are so willing to volunteer your time! :)
