AR Recess This Friday, June 9

Due to the short week, AR Recess will be earned this Friday by turning in the practice EOG's that should have been completed over track out.

Scholastic Book Order

Our final Scholastic Reading Club order for the year will be placed on June 19! Our classroom code is QG38C.

Educational Studies


Upon our return to school, we will be focusing on preparing for the EOG tests. We will be analyzing question wording to determine what the question is asking and looking for the best answer choices.


Time for review! We will be spending much of our time in small groups reviewing skills as needed based off of homework and practice EOG tests taken in the classroom. We will also work on breaking down multi-step story problems and using graphics (sketches or charts) to guide us through all of the steps.
