Viking 5K- Run for the Playground
Parents- Do you want to join us as we celebrate our school community and work together towards a common goal? Consider joining us for the Viking 5K on June 7. It will be fun!
Keep rounding up pledges for the Viking 5K. Pledges received for the Viking 5K will help defray the delivery cost of Gibraltar Elementary's new playground. Giving the kids the chance to raise funds for the playground allows them the opportunity to take ownership in the project. It gives them a chance to say, "I was part of the community effort that enabled us to have this new playground." All students will be able to participate no matter how much or how little they were able to fundraise.

What We are Learning this Week
After our Unit 11 test on Monday, the students will be taking some time to review the many, many concepts we covered in Math this year.
In Writing class, we are still learning and applying new information into our "Chocolate Milk" argument letters. We will be working on writing strong introductions and endings in addition to adding rebuttals to our work. On Thursday, the students will be presenting their argument letters to their classmates. Who will have the most persuasive argument-the pro chocolate milk or anti chocolate milk camp?
The students will begin reading their second book in book clubs in ELA. It is exciting to see the kids "devour" the books they have chosen. To hear them argue and discuss different points of the book is really exciting. We will continue to study the diary of Hattie Campbell.
Math Extension time will be spent reviewing the concepts presented in Unit 9. Volume, surface area, and ordered pairs are a few of the concepts we will be reviewing.
