Thank you for bringing in tee shirts.

We have enough white tee shirts for everyone. They are tie-dyed, printed, and ready to wear. Thank you parents for donating extras. We will sign them Thursday afternoon and send them home. Please have your child wear them Friday for the party.

Our last Makerspace session of the year...

We had fun "engineering" plants in our final Makerspace session. Each student had to make sure their plant had roots, a stem, leaves, and a flower.

Every student had the opportunity to share what they created with the class.

Superhero Reading Chart

Mr. Wampole will be sending a reading chart home at the beginning of every month. I have changed the format slightly for the November chart. Picture books will count as one book per line. Chapter books count as 20 pages per line (record the page numbers to the right). So, for example, if you are reading a chapter book such as The BFG, your first entry might be pg 1-25. The next entry may be pg 26-48 and so on.
