Students Created A City With Volume

4th Quarter

Can you believe that we are already starting 4th quarter?! Hard to believe. I always remind the students at the beginning of each quarter, that it is a fresh opportunity to do and be your best!

Please make note of when our MCA Tests will be taking place. Getting a good nights sleep and eating breakfast are two easy ways to help kids feel confident and ready to do their best on the test!

What Are We Working On This Week?

Character Education: In April, we are working on the traits of Fair/Equity.

Reader's Workshop: MCA Review

Spelling/Word Study: For 4th Quarter we will be back to having a weekly spelling list. Students should be studying their words every night. Week #14 Test will be this Friday.
