Friday

It was so great to see so many of the students taking part in crazy hair day today.  So many of them looked like they belonged in a rock band!  A reminder that Monday is a Pro-D day and there is no school for the students.  For those who placed a Scholastic order they have been shipped and will hopefully arrive at the end of next week.  Congratulations to the students in our classroom who took part in the Battle of the Books District Competition yesterday.  I was so proud of the teamwork and positive attitudes that our students demonstrated.  Have a wonderful weekend, see you on Tuesday!

April 3 - Welcome Back!

I hope that everyone had a great Spring Break.  Judging by the tired eyes in the classroom today you did!  Today we looked at spelling words that are often spelled wrong and we will be focusing on these in spelling over the next couple of weeks.  Please make sure that your child has inside and outside shoes, the fields are pretty muddy and wearing outside shoes in the classroom makes a mess of our floors.  Homework tonight:

 - home reading
 - study spelling
 - math 4p. 158#1-6, 5p. 157 #1-6, 6p. 182 #1-12 if not complete
 - journal if not complete
 - gym strip
 - change of socks and pants as the fields are wet
 - a good sleep

Have a good night.
