So much is going on!

  • Please check hair and make-up call times in Thursday notes.
  • Please see bowling permission form. I am looking for drivers/chaperones.
  • We finished our last states and capitals test - WOO HOO!
  • Please help your thespian study lines.
  • We have a huge need for help with hair and make up for the afternoon show on May 25th. We usually have middle schoolers help, but they are not available this year. No special experience is needed, but if you are good with up-dos we could really use your help for both shows.
  • Please continue to keep an eye on Power School for missing work. The grade book for fifth grade closes down early because of our Ashland trip.
  • All our new desks have arrived! Students are either in a tall desk or in a small desk with a yoga ball (their choice). There are now plenty of opportunities to "wiggle" during work time.
  • Please encourage your student to take research notes continually while they are completing the deadlines for the research project.
  • The research Important Poem final draft is due May 10th. Directions for this are now in Google Classroom.
  • Family religion discussion prompt: How does the Eucharist nourish you?
