No School and a Field Trip

Just a reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 18th for a Staff Development Day. Hopefully it is nice enough for the kids to get outside and burn off some energy!

This Tuesday is our music field trip to the high school to attend an African drumming performance. We will be leaving around 10am and returning around 11:30. We will miss our specialists, but will be back for our normal afternoon schedule.

What Are We Working On This Week?

Character Education: Trustworthiness

Reader's Workshop: We're working on making connections/ identifying cause and effect and we will be learning about the biography genre.
