Week in Review
Oh, what a year! We wrapped up our learning with a few major projects in Culture. See the pictures and captions below for more information.
These last few weeks have been busy but full of learning! We would love for that learning to continue throughout the summer to help avoid summer loss. Today, we will be sending home a "Summer Scavenger Hunt" focusing on a few fun and informal reading and writing activities for fourth and fifth graders. In addition, we sent home a few extra issues of Scholastic News that we did not get to read during the year. These make for great nonfiction reading! The Dyer Library has also put together a Summer Reading List for each of the grades and you can find it on their website. No matter the activity, it is important to keep minds engaged during this extended break.
Finally, we want to thank all of the parent volunteers we had this year! From the Gingerbread House Project to camping overnight to helping cut materials, we could not have done it without your help! Extra special thanks go out to Rachel Rebarchik who has taught cursive to our fourth graders for the past three years and helped with too numerous to count activities. She was often like a third teacher in our classrooms and will be greatly missed!

Our young engineers have been busy trying to build structures that can survive four different types of waves on our earthquake shake table. The big question next week will be whose structures survived?
Canada Travel Booth Projects
Students did a fantastic job sharing their Canada projects. Now we just can't decide which territory/province to travel to!
Good Luck Sixth Graders!
We want to say farewell to a wonderful group of 16 sixth graders as they move on to Karcher. We have truly enjoyed watching them grow! All are welcome to attend their moving-on ceremony this Wednesday.
