Snow Day Update!

As we approach returning to school on Thursday, I wanted to send out a few updates and reminders for the next week.

  1. Reading Pirate Adventures will continue this nine week period. Please see the note attached to the class email with the reading requirements for 3rd nine-week grading period along with incentives and the list of books for testing.
  2. We were scheduled to have a vocabulary test over “Word of the Day” Greek and Latin roots “aqua/hydra” on Friday of last week. Please make sure your child reviews last week’s bell work handout before returning Thursday. We will resume this assessment on Thursday.
  3. Also, last week, your child’s agenda had a cold-read assessment scheduled for Friday. We will take this assessment on Friday of this week. I plan to review the weekly skills: Point of View and Primary and Secondary Sources before testing. You may want to have your child complete an online review of the skill: Point of View on Study Island. (Log in information is located at the front of your child's binder.) I have assigned this to my students already. Information/notes on Primary and Secondary Sources is located in their binder in the ELA section as well.
  4. Last day to purchase a yearbook online is January 26th.
  5. Pastries with Parents will take place over a three-day period starting January 30th and continuing through February 1st. Please see Tara Oaks’ webpage for details.
I look forward to returning with hearing EPIC stories from the students!
