Animal Projects

In Language Arts we are putting the final touches on our animal reports. We will be making a clay model of our animals tomorrow. These reports will be on display at school for the next month...be sure to stop and see them!


Please encourage your child to be reading for AR at home to fulfill their reading log requirements. I would like students to be reading 30 minutes/night for 5 nights/week. So total 150 minutes due every Monday morning. Minutes read on the weekends count, too! The next reading log is due Monday, March 5. I will expect 150 minutes. IF YOUR CHILD HAS MADE THEIR AR GOAL FOR 3RD QUARTER, they will NOT be expected to turn in a reading log on March 13.
