A Note From Mrs. Waz...

This week the students took the Study Island Benchmark test for reading and math. I was very proud of their hard work and the growth they showed on the tests. Monday we will be starting a new lesson in Journeys, so there will be new spelling words and a test on Friday, 12/18.

I will be submitting the Scholastic Book orders this weekend. If you wish to order something, please email me or order on-line. The books will be here before break begins.

Thanks to all who have volunteered to help out at our Gingerbread House Party and who volunteered to send in supplies. The class is very excited to show off their creativity! The link is still attached if you didn't get a chance to sign up yet.

I hope you all have a relaxing, stress free December!

Please contact me if you have any questions or need anything!




Each student needs to bring in a box to use as the "shell" of their gingerbread house. You may begin sending them in next week. Boxes that work great are...Poptart boxes, cracker boxes, granola bar boxes, oatmeal boxes, mac n' cheese boxes etc.
