Student Council: Cookies and Coffee for Soldiers
What is more relaxing than a nice cup of coffee and a sweet treat of cookies?
Our Student Council is sponsoring a coffee and cookie drive for our troops through Friday, March 18th.
How can you help?
Please donate commercially packaged cookies and 1-pound bags of ground coffee. They can be placed on the table across from the Lost and Found. The donations will be packaged and sent to soldiers all around the world by The Military Support Group in Indianapolis in late March. Thanks for brightening a soldier's day!
Just like last grading period, Accelerated Reader will count as two reading grades. One grade will be for reading comprehension accuracy--the goal is for students to earn at least 85% accuracy. The other grade will be based on whether your child achieves his/her reading goal. All students have gotten their new goal for the grading period. It can be found in the front cover of their assignment notebook. Please take a look.
We are starting Chapter 6 which has us exploring sound. We will be discussing the following topics:
- chapter vocabulary
- sound's ability to travel
- to make more sense of what is happening
- to make the story more interesting/exciting
- to showcase the importance of some information
Spelling (Unit 6, Week 3)
The Core Words are guaranteed to be on Friday's spelling test. I will also choose 10 of the Test Words to include on the spelling test. Students can practice this week's words by going onto spellingcity.com.
