Mrs. Myerson's Classroom News - Week of April 11th

A Note from Mrs. Myerson

The 3rd marking period has ended, and we are now beginning the 4th and final! Let's make this one REALLY count! The students have definitely learned quite a bit and having made huge progress! We will keep plugging along as we wind down the year.


We have wrapped up Social Studies for the year, and we are moving in SCIENCE this week! We will be covering a wide variety of topics about Living and Nonliving things.


Finally, don't forget, our class trip the Regal Movie Theater in Vineland is THIS FRIDAY! Students must wear school uniforms, as we will return to school for the afternoon. As always, we are expecting great behavior so ALL students can participate in our trip!

**Our Spelling and Vocabulary tests will be on THURSDAY this week due to the trip!

Meet Mrs. Myerson!

I am a wife, and a "mommy" to my lab-pit, Chance. I love to read, dance, sing, be creative, organize, decorate, and spend time with my family and friends! I am an 8th year teacher in Vineland, and truly passionate about my job! Making learning fun for my students and sparking their curiosity is what I'm all about.
