Also studying their spelling words for this week. The Year 6's have band tomorrow so they are to dress in concert dress and not forget early morning band practice. They also have a math test on Wednesday on division. Have a great night.

What a fun end to a busy week. We did lots of fun, yet messy, art/craft/drama projects today. Some did not get a chance to participate because they had too much unfinished work for the week. Remember, if you do not get something done during the day it is YOUR job to take it home and finish it so that when we do fun art projects like we did today, that you get to take part. Homework:
- home reading
- novel study chapter(s) 1(1-2, depending on the group you are in) are due 8:30 Monday
- notice re: weekly running
- homework catch up, any unfinished work needs to be caught up on the weekend.
- a notice was emailed home today from the school as well.

Have a great weekend, enjoy the sunshine out there today!

Happy Friday!

Wow, we made it to Spring Break! What a great week this was, Science Fair was amazing! The students did a great job with their projects. Congratulations to Bailey and Allisa who's project was one of the projects chosen from our school to go to the District Science Fair with their project on How High Fat Foods Affect Blood Glucose in Type 1 Diabetics. A few might have homework over the break.

- home reading. This should be done every day (don't forget to add up your minutes for MS)
- fine arts - some of the students will have a drawing to finish for fine arts
- math. Some of the year 4/5 students have not finished their division journals for math. This must be done before you come back.

Have a great holiday, see you on the 15th!!!
