Dispatches from the Fifth Grade
BUSY WEEK AHEAD! :)
I hope you are enjoying your Sundays. Before afternoon slips into evening, I wanted to alert you to the chaotic nature of the upcoming week. Please note the following items:
1. IOWAs: Fifth grade students will be taking the IOWA standardized tests Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning. Please make sure your student arrives to school before 8:00AM, otherwise they will need to do the Make-Up session later in the week. We will be finished by recess each of the three mornings.
2. Public Speaking: Students will recite their public speaking selections in homeroom this Thursday afternoon from 2:00-4:00. They have been working hard to memorize and embody the tone and content of their pieces - I can't wait to see them! Finals will be held on March 12th from 11:00-12:00 in Locke Center.
3. Parent Conferences: Middle School parent conferences are this Thursday and Friday. I will email my most recent copy of the schedule tomorrow morning - please let me know if you need to change or add a time to meet. Please note that there is no school for students this Friday, due to conferences.
See you soon!
