This week’s story is The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. Revolutionary war hero Paul Revere warned the colonists of an advancing attack by the British Army. Revere rode his horse through the night warning every village and town. The colonists, prepared by Revere's warning, defeated the British forces.


We will focus on some vocabulary words in this story. It would be helpful if you will reinforce the meaning of these words at home with your child. Also, on this newsletter you will find our spelling words for the week. Please practice these words at home as well. Don’t forget our challenge spelling words. Finally, you will notice a set of “Amazing Words.” These words are not tested; however, we STRONGLY encourage you to have your child use these words of speaking, writing, etc. We will do the same in the classroom. Let’s have a great week!

Dress Code Reminder

As the weather stays on the warm side, students want to wear warm weather clothing. There have been several students who have arrived at school with clothing that is not acceptable according to the Madison County Student Code of Conduct Dress Code Policy. REMEMBER: shorts should not be shorter than the tips of your fingers when arms are extended to the side. A good rule of thumb: If in doubt....don't wear it.
