Mrs. Hobbs' Weekly News

4/21/16

Mrs. Wells

Friday was Mrs. Wells last day. We celebrated with Mrs. Wells favorite things: doughnuts, pizza, and Rubik's cubes. It has been an absolute blessing having her back at Schofield and we wish her well in her next adventure of being a librarian at Price Elementary!

Field Trip

We had a great time together at our field trip. Students attended KY3 Weather School and then attended a Springfield Cardinals game. It was a great day and we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather!

A Note from the Principal

We would like to invite you to take the Schofield End of the Year Patron Survey today! This survey will help us determine if we have shown growth in areas identified from the Patron Survey completed in November 2015. Follow the link below and help us grow!

  • M​eals cannot be charged during May at any grade level.

  • Parents of students who will not be returning next school year can complete a "Lunch Refund Request" to have any remaining money donated to another student or mailed as a check to their new address. The form can be filled out at the child's school or downloaded from the Food Service Department's website under "Resources", then "Lunch Refund Request".
  • Balances may be checked online thru your Parent Portal account or contact the Food Service Department at 735-3753 or e-mail ruth.melvin@republicschools.org.

Field Day Volunteers

Field Day will be May 11 grade from 1:00-3:00. We are in need of parent volunteers to make this even a success. All volunteers must have a background check. Please email me or Coach Wolf (ben.wolfinbarger@republicschools.org) if you are available to help!



Celebrate Schofield

We are planning a living museum in our classroom. Students have been researching and writing about a president. Students will dress up as their president or first lady (glasses, coats, mustaches, etc.) Please do not feel like you have to purchase anything for their costume; old coats, paper, cotton balls, or anything else lying around the house will work perfectly! Students will stay in their classrooms to present their president.

Our Schofield Showcase is scheduled for May 5th from 6-7:30, mark your calendars!

School Improvement Plan

Math- I can find the area and perimeter of a shape.


Writing- I can conduct short research projects that build knowledge about a topic. (President research project)


Reading- I can recount stories from folktales, fables, and myths form diverse cultures. They will determine the central message, lesson, or moral and explain how it is conveyed through key details in the text.


Science- Body Systems


  • Skeletal System: Categorize and label different bones by body parts (e.g., leg-tibia, arms-humerus, head-skull, torso-spine)

  • Sensory System: Classify the five sense organs and their parts (e.g., iris, ear canal, olfactory bulb, taste buds, nasal cavity) and explain how the five senses are used in personal and social environment (e.g., gathering information, making observations, drawing conclusions)
