Mrs. Whitener's Wise Owls

WEEKLY NEWSLETTER May. 2nd- May. 6th

Classroom News

- For daily homework, please check my website, the link is below. I update the homework every morning.


- Please remind your students to use their time wisely everyday. Even though testing is done, does not mean the school year is over.


-Please check your student for a belt EVERYDAY. Lately more and more students are forgetting their belts. Students will now get an infraction if they do not wear a belt.


- For Math this week we will be doing a review of all the things they have learned this year. There will be a small test on Wednesday before St. Augustine.


- We will be continuing Cryptid Hunter by Roland Smith. Please get this book as soon as possible!!


*** Remember for novels if you would like to get the book on an Ipad or kindle that is fine also :)


- Students will still be coming home with poetry homework. This homework is for them to type or neatly write their final drafts of their poems that they wrote in class. They should have one to do every night and it will be due the next day. The poems should already be complete, because we are working on them in class everyday. The poems also need a picture to go along with them. I have told the students if they are unable to print at home they may send it to me and I will print them out, but please know I can only print in black and white.
