Boals News

Dear Boals’ Families,


Happy Thursday! It is hard to believe we are almost in the middle of April! Students are expanding their talents and learning valuable skills everyday. Just a snapshot of what each grade level is doing.


Kindergarten is reading-story elements and writing imaginative stories.

1st grade is writing poetry and excited about the observing the life cycle of chicken eggs.

2nd grade is discovering what modifications of physical the environment and the consequences of human modifications.

3rd grade is learning about plants and writing poetry.

4th grade is inferring and evaluating accuracy of advertisements and labels.

5th grade is finishing up their math-financial literacy projects.

Quest students have been working on models of the Titanic.


Students are excited about Book Fair this week and feeling groovy about reading. Stop by when you are on campus. Students are encourage to dress in their best 60's attire for tomorrow. (optional)


First grade will be performing a darling program this evening after our PTA meeting in the cafeteria we welcome you to join us.


There are a limited number of yearbooks still available and in order to get one, you need to reserve their copy soon. Deadline is May 1st.


Sincerely,

Courtney Jennings
