Dear Parents,

Here's what's happening at school this week.

PE Reminder

Please send students with gym shoes on the week they have PE. They will not be allowed to participate in PE activities in snow boots for safety reasons.

English

The students did a great job last week researching the Klondike Gold Rush and creating their own Kahoot games, most of which we were able to play on Friday. We will begin reading Jason's Gold this week in class. Students will take notes on character, setting, conflict, and plot as we read.

Social Studies

The second round of the Geography Bee, which is a 5th-6th grade competition, will be held this week. The third and final round will be a 5th through 8th grade competition that will be held in the CMS/HS Auditorium. Stay tuned for more information. I will keep you posted!


Congratulations to our classroom winners:
