Homework on Study Island is due next Monday, May 9th. These assignments will help students prepare for their MAP and IBTS tests.
IF you would like for your child to get some extra practice during the week other than Study Island, please encourage them to work on the MAP testing practice links below.
2. STEAM DAY VOLUNTEERS: The FSA STEAM Day plans are moving full speed ahead for a great day of learning and fun on Thursday May 5th. We are looking for volunteers to work directly with the kids all day (some half day volunteer spots are also available) and have lots of great opportunities including working with art, fossils, gemstones, building stuff, and more. If you can’t wait to spend STEAM day at FSA, please sign up athttp://vols.pt/4SEcEr
If you have specific questions about STEAM day, please contact Alison Gurevich firstname.lastname@example.org
3. PLEASE return overdue library books!
LIBRARY BOOKS: Monday, May 2nd we will have our last class visit to the media center to check out books. The media center will be used for testing the last few weeks of May, so it is very important that your child returns any books that they have checked out! If you are unsure... please email me and I will let you know what your child has checked out!
4. MAKER FAIRE PROJECTS: If you signed up to be a part of the Maker Faire back in February.... make sure your child's project is turned in! The Maker Faire will be held on May 4th.
