Food Drive

The student council will be running a food drive taking place April 27th-May 1st. Please bring in any nonperishable food items. We will be keeping a running tally of the number of food items we bring in. The class who donates the most items in each grade level will win a Popsicle prize!

Pen Pals

Last week our class received our first letter from our 3rd grade pen pals in Mrs. Krueger's class. Each 3rd grader introduced themselves to their pen pal.


We began composing our letters answering our pen pals' questions. We will be using these letters to teach the 3rd graders a bit about Horizon. In addition, this is a great opportunity for our class to practice our friendly letter skills.


Your child's pen pal letter is due Monday, April 27th. Plan on having your child write their pen pal a letter every other week.

Progress Reports

Term 5 ended on April 23rd. Progress reports will be sent home Thursday, April 30th. Please read through your child's progress report and sign and return the second sheet. In addition, to the progress report you should find some of your child's work. You may keep the actual progress report and student work for your records.
