Curriculum Update

Social Studies: We took our BA this week. There will be a make-up test next Wednesday for those that would like to improve their score. We also will be using the week to complete passion projects. The students are able to research and learn about anything related to American History and create a project or presentation about it. We will be sharing these projects on Monday, and they can be taken home after graduation on Tuesday (if needed). It should be a wonderful culmination of what we have learned this year. The students will revisit American History again in 8th grade!

Science: The BA will be on Tuesday. Study guides should have been brought home with your child. Please try to help them study and prepare for the BA.

Math: The final checking progress for math will be on Thursday.

Writing: Throughout elementary, students have been building a writing portfolio. Before the end of the year, they will be getting their artifacts back and reflecting on their growth as a writer throughout the years. Be on the lookout for this!

Reading: Final independent reading expectations and book club wrap-ups will be occurring next week. Check in with your child and make sure they are on track!
