Dear UMAC Parents,

I’m proud of how hard my students worked through their MAP testing this week. Each student attacked each test with determination and I couldn’t ask for anything more! There are a few students that will need to complete the tests next week. I’m excited that we will continue to focus on a fun filled ending to our school year!

Please also mark your calendars for next Thursday evening, May 12 for Academic Night! Our team has been working so hard this year and we have many great things to share with our biggest supporters: YOU!

Most importantly.....We wish all of our hard-working and dedicated mothers the very best Mother's Day weekend! We hope your children pamper you and give you extra TLC this weekend!

Growing Up Unit- Old friends only!

This is a reminder that our OLD friends will be participating in the Growing Up lessons during STEM class. On May 12, the lesson will cover the Endocrine System defining the role that hormones play in the daily function of our bodies. The students will read an article about puberty and on May 19th a movie will be shown. The boys and girls will be watching this movie in different locations. Please contact Mrs. Krutsch, our STEM teacher, if you have any questions.

Web conferences for two more weeks!

Can you believe that we are approaching the end of the year so quickly? We want to thank all of our amazing WEB volunteers who gave up their time each week to build a strong reading relationship with our UMAC readers. We appreciate the time, effort and passion for reading!

Teacher Appreciation

Thank you SO much for the amazing notes, cards, pictures and gifts this week. Our class is certainly a very special team and I feel so fortunate to come and learn with your child each day! I appreciate all that you do at home to support and reinforce as we grow together. It is such a gift to be together for two years!
