Million Words Challenge Goals

Make sure your child is reading 30 minutes every night and logging their minutes to turn in on Mondays!

April 20 = 4,500 minutes DUE

Week 25 Learning Targets

Language Arts- We are starting our STAAR Countdown. We have ten class days left before the big day. We will be refining our test taking skill and strategies, as we set goals and achieve them!

Math- Our new module extends multiplication to examples involving decimals to the hundredths. We will be representing this information using number lines, fraction bars, box method, and traditional algorithm.

Science- This week we will complete our unit on life science. The Eco column investigation will continue through the end of the school year. The students will be reviewing for the end of unit assessment for life science that will take place next week. Vocabulary: metamorphosis, complete metamorphosis, incomplete metamorphosis, learned behavior, inherited trait, and genes.


NEW! We will no longer call students out of class after 2:30pm for early dismissal. We need to make sure each child is getting home safely and after 2:30pm teachers are working to ensure this happens. Thank you for your cooperation in helping all Hawks get home safely.

ATTENTION CAR RIDERS: You must have the GREEN pick up card on your dashboard when picking up your child. If you choose to park and walk up, you must have your pick up card with you. The safety of your children is our top priority. Thank you for your cooperation.

PVE Writing Rubric Expectations

Parents, we would like to refresh your memory of the 2014/2015 PVE instructional focus. Across all curricular arenas we are directing our attention to writing. It is our expectation that every student will progress at least one year in their level of writing. As a staff we have created a rubric to hold the students accountable. This rubric is posted below. When your child is writing any assignment at home, please hold them to the fifth grade standard. The rubric is not unfamiliar to the students. A checklist with goals is in their Go Folder (pictured below). Please review your child's checklist and goals with them at home. The rubric itself is in every subject notebook, and it is posted in every classroom. We are continually amazed by the quality of work our children produce and fully expect each child to meet their goal.

Stride Academy

We do have Stride Academy again this year. It is a great online program for the kids to play and have fun while strengthening their reading and math skills. It works at their level and targets specific areas of need. Please login and enjoy! Please find your child's homeroom teacher information below.

Six Week Auctions- Need Donations

We will be having auctions about every 6 weeks. This is a great way for our students to spend the "money" they have been earning for their classroom jobs and excellent behavior. We would love any donations to make this the best auction ever. Donations can vary from anything to new/slightly used small toys, finger nail polish, lotions, Pokémon, trinkets, etc. We would greatly appreciate any donations.

Bring in Boxtops!
